Callicott, 67, lives with his wife and sister in Nesbit, his birthplace. He learned to play guitar when he was 15. "I'd stand around and look, you know," he recalls. "Just look at 'em and listen and go ahead on like I'm not paying 'em no attention. I'd catch it. I'd come home to my box and play it."
