This last June my family and I went to Boone, NC for a camping trip. One night we were hanging out in downtown Boone and saw that the entire street had been blocked off. The reason for that was the there was a statue being dedicated to Doc Watson ----- and he was there for the dedication! I am a Doc Watson fan ----- ever since I heard a PBS special called the Three Pickers [you can check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxiligIJ-TU It was awesome to be that close to such a bluegrass legend. Doc Watson was born blind. I have been told that he was able to wire his entire house, even though he was born blind.
