Remembering Josh Graves

I have never achieved fame for playing the dobro. But I shall never forget the first time I heard Josh Graves play.

In 1960 I was a nine year old kid who came in the house one saturday afternoon. About that time Josh started taking a break on a song. I don’t remember the song, but I will never forget the impression it had on me.

I have never enjoyed listening to anything as much. That sound caught my ear and would never ever leave me.

I knew on that day in 1960, that I would play the dobro someday. Someday came 16 years later in 1976.

I thank you Josh for giving me the most beautiful music, the most pleasure I could have ever received. I do want to send condolences to the family. From Josh Graves biggest fan.
