He's a neighbor of mine, having grown up in this hood and spending most of his life here, but Randy Buckner is a complex package in a disarming disguise. He first picked up a guitar at age 9 and STILL feels the joy of tearing up the strings in the style of Merle Travis today as when he began. I've enjoyed our porchside chats, but had no idea he was such a talented musician until the day Dallas Jones told me: "You know that guy, Randy, who just walked by? One of the best guitarists in the whole area." He's so humble and kind and I just never knew that, so it's been a true pleasure getting to know such a wonderful soul. Enjoy!
