  1. Here's a little story in praise of the Great Man: Gotta share one first-person Doc story. I was at Merle Fest awaiting the start of the guitar picking competition. All the contestants waited backstage as the master of ceremonies introduced Doc and asked Doc to pick a tune on the new guitar that would go to the winner. Following Doc's virtuoso performance, the MC called for contestant number one. After a lengthy delay, the MC returned and announced that "Contestant number one has lit out the back door. Apparently he thought Doc was contestant number one." To which Doc replied: "I feel right sorry for that ole boy." Pretty well sums up the man and his talent.
