I wondered if that's who you were going to tell us about when I opened the link. I still think of The Beverly Hillbillies most of all, and that was MANY decades ago. I sure bet Steve Martin is glad he got a chance to play some music with him.
Thanks for the music, Earl.

Banjo goes back quite a ways but Scruggs sort of brought it to the forefront. Yes, he can finally now play with Lester. I had the opportunity to share a few beers with Mr. Flatt after a show at the Birchmere in Alexandria, VA, whereupon I asked him if he was ever going to tour with Earl Scruggs again? He said, sadly, no. Mrs. Scruggs had demanded a price of about ten grand per show. Lots of Bluegrass is played in small venues like the Birchmere. I'm guessing there were maybe twenty small tables in the whole place. BTW, if you thought Scruggs was good on that banjo, you should have heard Flatts pick that madolin. He could even play it Les Paul style. Plus he was funny as h3ll.
