Thread Name: Merle Watson's death (1949-1985)
Subject: RE: Merle Watson's death
at Winfield one year, the audience was hooting and chanting "sing, Merle...let Merle sing"....and Doc leaned over to the mic and said something to the effect of 'that's not gonna happen'...and then added..."tell you the truth, I don't believe the boy can sing" ...Merle sat and looked embarrassed. Made me uncomfortable. But Merle sure could play...
