Caus all hes got is time to sit and play all day. Makes me want to quit my ****ing job, lose the house and all the CRAP I own. Caus when it comes down to a trade between all the CRAP that I own and the ability to play music like that. The music always wins.

Gary Davis had a heart the size of Texas,too. He brought a ton of love to the music. He was a wise,thoughtful,compassionate,soulful man,with a calling in life. He was no technician,although he was technically skilled. I wish I coulda sat at his feet for a while.
