Subject: RE: Obit: Davey Graham R.I.P. (15 Dec 2008)
I've just read this and I'm in tears. He was a huge influence on many of us and, like many and another, "Folk Roots New Routes" and "Folk Blues and Beyond" were albums that changed the way I looked at the guitar. I had the good fortune to jam on several occasions with DG at the Cousins allniters and he was invariably kind and courteous and not at all condescending to a younger and more inexperienced player. All I can do is raise a glass and say "thank you."
