Earl Scruggs, Rest in Peace

The surviving member of “The Foggy Mountain Boys” has passed at age 88.  Earl Scruggs, along with his partner Lester Flatt helped highlight that all country and western music wasn’t just about singing about your dog, beer, whiskey, woman and your truck.

It was about the music as well, and the pair’s “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” is still one of the most impressive country music instrumentals ever composed.

Here’s my favorite rendition of the piece, it was done years back to celebrate Scruggs’ 80th Birthday and included some of country music’s greatest musicians of the present day.  Also, you might recognize the man on Second Banjo and the piano player.
