NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The funeral for legendary bluegrass banjo artist
Earl Scruggs will be Sunday in Nashville.

And with comedian and banjo player Steve Martin, one of his biggest
fans, already scheduled to appear on The Academy of Country Music Awards
on Sunday night, the show's producers are planning a moment to remember
the pioneering musician. Scruggs died at age 88 of natural causes
Wednesday morning.

Flowers were laid on his Hollywood Walk of Fame star Thursday morning as
news of his passing continued to ripple through the music community.

Scruggs' funeral will be conducted at Ryman Auditorium, once home to the
Grand Ole Opry for many years. The service will begin at 2 p.m.

You must be a rap fan. Grow up and learn about some good music.

Sad.

When I lived in England Scruggs was the guy with they funny name who
did the music for the Beverly Hillbillies.

But I "discovered" him after moving to the US and grew to love his
banjo playing.

He was a man of enormous talent

My sympathies to those he leaves behind.

Absolute master of timing. Precision was Earl's trademark.
