Earl Scruggs died yesterday and the world has lost an extraordinary musician. If you're not a bluegrass, or banjo aficionado you might not think you know who Earl is, but I'll bet you've heard his music.
If you've ever seen the movie Bonnie & Clyde you've heard this next piece of music. If you haven't seen that movie, no sweat, I bet you've heard the theme song to The Beverly Hillbillies. Earl did that too.
Nothing I can say will do justice to this legendary performer. Just watch the video and appreciate how skillful this musician was.
Love ya, Earl. Rest in peace.
