Always glad to see a Woody post. I saw one of his last appearances at the Wilmington opera House in Delaware. I can't describe what it was like seeing him come out with a walker. He did joke about his tax trouble etc., but it was still sad to see the shape he was in. Thanks for keeping his music alive.
