    Sad to hear. He was a great institution, beautiful voice, and slick flat picker.

    If you mean the diagnostic tool (Dr. Watson) popular in the Windows operating system, no.

    The most common expanation is that the tool was named after Dr. John Watson of Sherlock Holmes fame.

    I have enjoyed Doc Watson music for longer than I can remember.
    Thanks, amigo.
    Rest well.
