Country Music Goodness, a blog covering the wide spectrum of country music, published a brief interview with banjo ace Earl Scruggs yesterday, Sunday, September 14th, 2008.
Although a very brief conversation, Scruggs is asked about his contemporaneous perception of his time of his time with Bill Monroe; punctuality and life on the road; and baseball. He has some interesting things to say that remind us what bluegrass music life was like was in the mid-1940s. It’s another world!
The full interview can be read at the Country Music Goodness website.
