Happy Birthday, Doc

A quick birthday wish goes out to Pete Wernick, aka Dr. Banjo, who turns 60 today (2/25/06). It’s a major milestone – congrats, Pete!

UPDATE: We just received a note from Jeanie Stanley about another bluegrass “doctor” celebrating a birthday today.

“February 25 is Dr. Ralph Stanley’s 79th birthday. Dec. 1, 2006, is the 40th anniversary of my father, Carter Stanley’s, passing.

Godspeed to all those who love and play bluegrass music.”
