Earl Scruggs Adds & Subtracts
Robert Duncan, Creem, December 1974
DO NOT read this if you play banjo. Or, at least, hide your Earl Scruggs and the Five-String Banjo, draw the curtains on your altar, and douse the light-up plastic Scruggs statue that has monopolized your studious gaze. Yes, in scruffier publications this item would be entitled: "Earl Scruggs Quits Bluegrass!" "I couldn't support a band on bluegrass music. I didn't quit bluegrass as just bein' a straight damn fool... cause I was at the head of the fountain! I quit because I was gettin' bored to death playin' the same thing... for 28... 30 years."
