Herb Pedersen on Linda Ronstadt, Jerry Garcia, and More

Great to see Herb Pedersen getting some well-deserved recognition. Just one bit of misinformation: Earl Scruggs actually asked Herb to fill in for him with Flatt & Scruggs, not the Earl Scruggs Review (hence Herb's references later in the article to working with Lester Flatt). Herb has related in previous interviews his amazement at how tight and choreographed the Foggy Mountain Boys were, and how Lester took him under his wing for those fill-in shows.
