    Sad to admit that I thought he was long gone too.

    I'm a huge fan of Earl Scruggs dating from his early recordings when he and Lester Flatt left Bill Monroe's band to go off and on their own formed Flatt & Scruggs & The Foggy Mountain Boys (got a great series of DVDs of their old tv shows from Bear Family a couple of years ago)... every album those guys put out is worth owning.

    Also a big fan of his days in the Earl Scruggs Revue with his sons Gary and Randy.
    Earl did at least one great album with Doc Watson as well.

    Huge talent without the Nashville sized ego.

    I thought so too. And I didn't know about the Bill Monroe connection, but it makes a lotta sense.

    Beverly Hillbillies is one of my guilty pleasures, and I remember Lester and Earl, Roy Clark, and some dude that played the shit out of a fiddle being guests on the show.

    Dyuuuude, I am a total Green Acres freak. Petticoat Junction, yes but not nearly as much as the other two Henning shows.
