Earl Scruggs...Bluegrass Legend Passes
Bluegrass great Earl Scruggs dead at 88
By the CNN Wire Staff

quote:
(CNN) -- Earl Scruggs, who as a child developed the distinctive picking style that forever changed banjo playing, and whose association with Lester Flatt cemented bluegrass music's place in popular culture, died Wednesday of natural causes at a Nashville hospital, his son Gary Scruggs said. He was 88.

I always liked Earls style. He was head and shoulders above other banjo players, and he always seemed to enjoy playing.

Re: Earl Scruggs...Bluegrass Legend Passes
Some of us young banjo students back then were lucky enough to have a turntable with a 16.5 rpm speed so we could play Scruggs at half speed and help figure out what he was doing.

Re: Levon Helm, 71
This is a tough one for me. He was one of the greats. I listen to him and The Band all the time. One of my regrets is never making it to a Midnight Ramble.

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. -- Thomas Jefferson

We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat

It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate

Howling about evidence is a conversation stopper, and it never stops to think if the claim could possibly be true -- foreveryoung
