I am not surprised to read Bob Stayman's accomplishments; he was a very sharp fellow in high school. He was also a very good guitar player. Bob gave me lessons how to Travis (finger) pick my guitar and one of the songs he taught me was the Dave van Ronk versoin of "Cocaine Blues" which I still play today. So how many other LT kids even knew who Dave van Ronk was or for that matter how to play "Cocaine Blues" when most of our music was focused on cars, falling in love, falling out of love, and not being understood by our parents?

I remember Bob was in a group called the New Caledonians and provided intermission entertainment at some of our school dances. I was in another group called the Blue Ridge Boys and like the Caledonians we played Blue Grass music. That was all part of the big folk music craze of the sixties. We were keenly interested in "what are the Caledonians playing" because they were that much more advanced. It was tough back then, we didn't have You tube with a hundred examples of every song imaginable! And on that note, I've tried to provide one of many links to Dave van Ronk playing "Cocaine Blues."  If this doesn't work, you can just do your own search.

Thanks Bob! Fond memories.
