Watson’s Riddle

Founding Marshall Tucker Band drummer Paul T. Riddle and noted jazz guitarist Steve Watson (who has recorded theme music for shows like Magnum PI, The A-Team, LA Law and Quantum Leap) both live in the Greenville/Spartanburg, SC area. At the suggestion of one of his guitar students, cardiothoracic surgeon Douglas Appleby, Watson wrote a series of instrumental songs that were “emotionally engaging, relaxing and transforming to the human soul.” He eventually took the project to his neighbor Riddle, who brought in keyboardist Chuck Leavell and bassist Tim Lawter (Marshall Tucker Band) to form a new project.

The musicians have now recorded a self-titled titled album under the name Watson’s Riddle. The album also includes contributions from keyboardists Hazen Bannister (Swingin’ Medallions) and Steve Keeter, percussionist Ricky Hicks, soprano saxophonist Matt Olson, alto saxophonist Will Compton and trumpeter Dick Goodwin. Dr. Appleby also plays acoustic guitar on one song. Watson’s Riddle will also perform at Spartanburg, SC’s Chapman Cultural Center on September 8.

There are legends that Adam had a wife brfeoe Eve who was named Lilith, but this is not found in the Bible. The legends vary significantly, but they all essentially agree that Lilith left Adam because she did not want to submit to him. According to the legends, Lilith was an evil, wicked woman who committed adultery with Satan and produced a race of evil creatures. None of this is true. There is no biblical basis whatsoever for these concepts. There is no one in the Bible named Lilith.
