Thread Name: Dave Van Ronk seriously ill
Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk seriously ill
I do more Dave Van Ronk songs than I probably should. People always want to know how I developed my style. I tell them I didn't...it's a poor imitation. They say that imitation is the sincerest for of flattery. Dave Van Ronk is my own personal musical hero.
I spoke with him a year or so ago prior to one of his gigs. I asked about THIS SITE, and the guy who put it together. His response was typical Dave. "Nice fellow."
God bless you Dave for all you have brought to this world. Speedy recovery.
