Wow, I hadn't heard this. At least he was around long enough to bring us wonderful and in many ways revolutionary music. Many thanks, Mr. Scruggs, for making the world a more beautiful place.

Oh, very sad. Been listening to a lot of his recordings lately, he sure was talented and a lot of fun. RIP Mr. Scruggs.

I remember back in the '70s when I went to a couple of outdoor blugerass fetivals in NJ. Although I never like Nashville country (even though I lived briefely in Nashvile), I aways liked bluegrass.

On thing that stuck me about the festivals was that hippies, red necks, hard core rock and hard core county people, etc all got along great sitting next to each other just enjoying the fantastic bulegrass music.
