Folk music legend Doc Watson passed away yesterday at the age of 89. He passed away at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, NC.

Doc Watson, who was blind since infancy, was known for his outstanding acoustic guitar playing, was hospitalized last week when he underwent surgery after he fell at his home in Deep Gap.

He purchased his first guitar as a young boy for just $10.00 and learned to play it.

Doc did an interview with friend of the site Jon Bream in 2000 and you can access the interview here.-DocFB
