A good friend of mine,Ian Sharp,from Darlington in the UK who's been a friend of Doug Dillard for some time,e-mailed me this morning to tell me that Doug passed away last night in hospital. Doug's wife,Vikki, was in touch with Ian yesterday to say that Doug was doing ok.Apparently he took a turn for the worst & was rushed to hospital,where he passed away.
That's another legendary picker gone from us & one of my premier influences when i began playing Banjo back in '63.
I am just so sad to hear this dreadful news - R.I.P. Doug Dillard,
