Default MAC WISEMAN to be inducted into Country Music HOF.

MAC WISEMAN to be inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame:

"The Newport Folk Festival in the Sixties must have really been something.
Oh, I was very pleased to be a part of it for several years. I was right up there when Chappaquiddick happened that was something! But then we had people like Joan Baez. Or Mississippi John Hurt, who they thought was gone and dead but they found him down in Mississippi somewhere, and he came up there and sat under a tree and sang his songs. People like that just followed Joan around, getting acquainted with the business. [Bill] Monroe was there, and we would do a set together.

Did you hang out with Bob Dylan there?
I sure did. I remember we played a couple gigs together, and we'd get to the motel and just have a picking session for hours.
That must have been incredible.
Oh, it was just wonderful. Gordon Lightfoot would participate sometimes, too." [url]

Sounds like the inspiration for "Hangdog Hotel Room".
