Lovely photo of Earl Scruggs and his wife Louise, who died recently. Stolen from Jon Weisberger's obituary of Mrs Scruggs in the Nashville Scene. A remarkable woman, the grossly under-appreciated role of Earl and his sons in the development of the country rock phenom is one I keep meaning to highlight. Louise has a big role in that, and in his earlier career. His earlier career of course being "inventing bluegrass."
