RIP Earl Scruggs, King Of The Banjo.
Cine Meccanica takes a moment to remember bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs, who passed away yesterday at the age of 88. His genius will never be forgotten, and the vehicular classic, Bonnie & Clyde would not have been the same without this wonderful, banjo pickin’ tune by the one and only Flatt & Scruggs.
