Earl Scruggs, the hardriving banjo player at the heart of music died this week at 88. It was the brilliant and intricate work he did with his guitar playing partner, Lester Flatt, that brought this mountain music to millions of people -- when their work became the score for Bonnie and Clyde on the run, or the hillbilly anthem of Jed Clampett.
There is much to say about bluegrass, and Earl's contribution. For now, let's just listen.
