I never met Dick but he was a pivotal influence on me nonetheless. His recording of Bowery Buck that appeared on one of the early Kicking Mule albums was a tune that had me banging away on the guitar for years. Fortunately the TAB came with the album otherwise I would have been completely stonkered. When Dick toured here (Australia) in the early 80s with Dave Bromberg I got to see him perform the tune live. I remember Dave wryly introducing it as Dick's big hit. Well...it was...with me anyway. Then Dick, who was standing to one side of the stage, just launched into the most beautiful piece of picking I had seen and heard. What a masterful player.
My sympathy to his family and friends.
