    Yeah, I saw that a little bit ago (the news that is, not the video)

    Made me think of Bits of course.

    My life is slipping away
    I'm aging every day
    But even when I'm grey
    I'll still be grey my way

    Dang, there's just a few banjos there

    Hey was that Lester Flatt way off to the left of the stage (right of screen) real quick there at about the 1:45 mark?

    RIP... Flatt and Scrugs were some of the best banjo picking that ever was.

    I didn't know who they were at the time (I was just a kid) but I always liked the Beverly Hillbillys theme.

    RIP Earl. I have a few things I've gotten from youtube of his that I listen to quite a bit. It's a loss to banjo fans for sure, but at least he lived a good long life doing what he loved to do. He will be missed.

    Well damn, I have some of their stuff, it's good, Was browsing vinyl in local shop today and came across one of his, was priced at a fiver which is a reasonable price but deffo not cheapie which must mean his music is respected.

    I believe he contributed to soundtrack of Bonnie & Clyde movie, the one with Faye Dunaway & Warren Beatty.

    RIP Earl, good innings old son.
