Shock at death of guitar maestro

Many in Derry were shocked to hear of the passing of local musician, Anthony ‘Doc’ O’Doherty, on Friday past.

‘Doc’, who was 40 years-old, was well-known in bands locally, as well as having taught scores of fledgling musicians to play guitar through the Nerve Centre. A family member spoke of their comfort that Anthony’s organs were donated, “to hopefully give someone else the chance of life.” ‘Doc’ O’Doherty leaves behind a massive musical legacy in Derry.
