It's not been a good year for fans of bluegrass and hillbilly music. Just a couple months ago, Earl Scruggs passed away. Now, Doc Watson. I'm not going to sit here and pretend like I know much of anything about Watson. I do know that he's been around a long time, is highly respected, and that I've never heard anything by him that I didn't like. Even with just that, he's a few notches above most of the hacks in my collection.
