Another musical villain bites the dust

The great bluegrass banjo pioneer (sic) Earl Scruggs died ealier this week, aged 88.

A banjo player stopped his car by a hardware shop, while on the way to a rehearsal session. As he was searching the store for some lengths of fencing wire suitable for restringing his banjo, it dawned on him that he had left the instrument in the car, and forgotten to lock the doors.

The absent-minded musician immediately ran back to his vehicle, but it was too late. Someone had left another two banjos on the back seat.

I’ll get my coat.

RIP Earl Eugene Scruggs (1924–2012)
