New Earl Scruggs Bio Opens an Icon's Life for Both Avid and Casual Fans

   This looks like a great book, Earl Scruggs was the musician that turned me on to bluegrass when I was a youngster.  I saw him play with his sons in the Earl Scruggs Review.  This book looks like it was done well. I saw this group in the mid 70 s. Great review.

Thanks, Jim. You'd be amazed at the number of big name pros who say exactly the same thing. And Earl is still turning on youngsters and others, even if they were first attracted by other pickers and various styles, serious musicians always come back to Scruggs and Monroe.
