My deepest sympathy goes to Randy, Gary and families. I am so sorry for your loss. I was a huge fan of your father. Your father brought great joy and listening pleasure to everyone. Earl Scruggs was and always will be the best ever on the 5-string banjo and he was tremendous on the guitar as well. He was also part of one of the greatest bands of all time of any music genre when Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs were together in the 1940's. I even bought a 1947 songbook from E-bay years ago when they were playing together as one band. Earl Scruggs will be dearly missed by many including me. Thank you.
