An American Legend: Earl Scruggs
Earl Scruggs, one of the giants of American music in the 20th Century, died yesterday at the age of 88. That's him on the right in a photo from the 1950s with his long-time collaborator Lester Flatt. Scruggs was the king of the banjo and helped propel Bluegrass to the counter-culture in the late 1960s and beyond.
