    Doc Watson Dies - He was 89

    Sad news to report. Folk music legend Doc Watson has died at 89.

    Watson went blind before his first birthday, but that didn't stop him from playing harmonica, a homemade banjo and guitar. What an inspiration.

    Watson passed away after a fall last week at his home in Deep Gap, NC, and after subsequent colon surgery, according to USA Today.

    R.I.P., Doc. Your musical legacy lives on.

    Are you a fan of the Doc? If not, will you check his music posthumously?

    —Maggie Pannacione
