Guitar legend Doc Watson dies at N.C. hospital, representative says - CNN.com
Most guys here probably have never heard of the guy, but my father is bluegrass guitar and banjo player, so I grew up listening Doc's playing. He was a monster player who influenced basically everyone who has graced the stage of the Grand Ole Opry.
I just posted about this on my facebook last night. The guy was a legend and essentially invented an entire style of guitar playing.
