Thread Name: is there a Doc Watson's fan club
Subject: RE: is there a Doc Watson's fan club
REAL musicians don't need fan clubs. Fan Clubs are something dreamed up by the commercial world of manufactured pop music.
If you have any questions about Doc there are many people on Mudcat alone that will give you plenty of answers and share their appreciation of his music.
Strictly speaking I wouldn't describe Doc as a Bluegrass Musician, he is far more than that but he was certainly a pioneer in picking fiddle tunes on guitar. However you describe him he is a treasure, a musician and a man to be much admired.
