RIP Earl Scruggs

Somehow I missed this. Bluegrass great Earl Scruggs passed away over the weekend. A truly talented man who revolutionized the genre. In the fine tradition oof completely forgetting about music I love until just after the artist dies, enjoy his classic "Foggy Mountain Breakdown."

Yes, I thought about the ages - this was not a premature death! But whatever the age I always get sad when great musicians die, because as you say we're losing those living links. That's probably more of a loss with bluegrass than other genres, because it's such an oral tradition.
