Thread Name: OBIT: RIP Dave Van Ronk (1936-2002)
Subject: RE: OBIT: RIP Dave Van Ronk
Very sad news indeed. I love this guy's music. I saw Dave a few times in very intimate settings (shows w/ just a few people), and hung with him for a while at a festival. What a giant of a human being. I talked about getting some lessons from him, but never wound up getting together. Anyone have a transcription of how he played his song "John Hurt"?.... Peace, Dave. -CC
