Just had to add something to the earlier music discussion before truly turning in.
Glen Campbell and Leon Russell. Not near the unusual pairing you might think, (give a listen to Russell’s “Hank Wilson’s Back, Vol I and II” sometime). And Campbell’s solo at 2:20 is a jaw dropper.

“Random: That means I’m prickly on the same days you’re entirely unfunny. What a coincidence”–David O’Brien @ 7:31
Now that’s good !.

Great story about Emmylou Harris, Haggard. Makes me wonder if I served her a beer that fateful night.
March 29th, 20121:52 am
I was just scrolling through some earlier pages when I came across your sad announcement of the death or Earl Scruggs. As you said, what an innovator as he took the banjo from the simpler clawhammer style to the more complicated three-finger style. The talented Bela Fleck said Flatt and Scruggs’ “The Ballad Of Jed Clampett” made him want to pick up the banjo.
The following are a couple of clips of Earl over the years and if you’d like to hear Flatt and Scruggs at their absolute zenith, check out Live Ay Carnegie Hall from 1963.

It’s a new day! And thanks much to haggard for the music!

Hello everyone! Heyward had a great game! Love that blast from Heyward.Taht was a bomb.
March 29th, 20122:11 am
Good to see Heyward crush that ball over the fence today. Could be good signs to come?
March 29th, 20122:17 am
I’m confident on the pitching now. J.J. after his last start, Hanson,Minor will be o.k. with me. Not worried about Beachy. Just concerned on Huddy,and hope his health issues get better with back?The fith starter should be Medlen……..
March 29th, 20122:18 am
Especially “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” Driving that is a pipl!
March 29th, 20122:26 am
If you driven there in the morning, you know. If you haven’t, you will.

great story hag, thanks for sharing it. sorry I missed you ol’ buddy
March 29th, 20124:23 am
All Have a good one! Talk tomorrow. It’s hard to believe baseball is back. We can put the past to rest,and look forward to the future.Looking forward to another exciting year.Can’t imagine not being a Braves Fan…….Starting my 29th season as a Braves Fan,and Proud to be a Braves Fan. “Go!!!!!Braves!!!!!” Next week baseball is back!!!!!Yes!!!!!!!!!

I’m depressed. First my UNC Tar Heels get ousted by DOB’s Jayhawks from the NCAA Tournament, then I find out that Barnes, Marshall and Henson are likely entering the NBA Draft and now DOB confirms the obvious. The Braves will be mired in mediocrity this season. This has been SOME week.
March 29th, 20125:55 am
In case you missed it, red-suited Ron Burgundy (aka Will Farrell) announced on Conan last night that he’s working on a sequel to Anchorman. Seriously.
March 29th, 20126:01 am
Hate to hear that Danny Manning is taking the head coaching job at Tulsa. I mean, happy for him, but hate to see him not be there to coach KU’s front-line guys, because he’s done terrific work with them over the years.

Up at 5 a.m. today. New MLB media dress code also includes mandate that all writers must be awake for the day’s first game — even if it’s in Japan.

Just another obit in the amplified world of information. Once, I started looking through You Tube, though, Earl Scruggs brought back a lot of memories. I was sitting on the floor playing “Go Fishing” or something similiar. Two TV stations. Dad won. Mom in the kitchen with Martha White. Earl picking with Lester.
Dang, I always liked that Dobro fill.
Then, going down the highway with my best friend. Flint Hill Special is playing on the underground radio station. “Turn it UP and watchout for cops!”
Fun times at those Bluegrass Festivals.
“Yep. We had a good time, mom.”
“Aw, some moron was burning leaves. I hope it washes out.”
March 29th, 20126:43 am
Couch Tater: Scruggs was a genuine giant of music, bonafide legend and bluegrass pioneer — and was still in fine form into his late ’80s. Saw a fascinating exhibit once at the Country Music Hall of Fame detailing how he changed the game with his three-finger picking style.
By the way, Braves Opening Day is now just a week away.
March 29th, 20127:14 am
Wow. Earl is gone. Sad morning for me.
I am a bluegrass man through and through. Flatt and Scruggs are the main reasons.
And Earl is the reason I picked up the banjo.
I knew the day was coming. Still hurts though.
March 29th, 20127:29 am
Was reading that now that the Dodgers are going to be big players it seems to reason they will pay Hamels whatever it takes to sign him next year. Could be the best two Lefties in Baseball on the same team if that happens in Kershaw and Hamels. Hamels is from Southern California so it could very well end up that way.

Right now over Dark Star Lake (aka Lake Bryan) from the blog annex condo balcony.
March 29th, 20127:53 am
you can bet yo sweet ass
they having a bluegrass jamboree
in heaven today
March 29th, 20128:11 am
Yes, a wonderful memory of sitting around with my dad watching Flatt and Scruggs play and seeing the joy my dad had watching. It is a special memory now.
March 29th, 20128:21 am
Could it be…..??? Has BEACHY actually learned how to pitch by putting hitters away when he gets them on the ropes? Has he really ‘flipped the switch?’ One can only hope. Less wasted pitches, less stress on the offense, and the pen. To be redundant, one can only hope.
March 29th, 20128:23 am
There surely is fog on the mountain today. Sad. I feel your pain brother.
March 29th, 20128:31 am
You remember KENNY HADDOCK prolly played that fill. A native Richmonder, he passed last year.
March 29th, 20128:34 am
When I was at Cooperstown in the early 90’s they were showing the 91 world series as the greatest world series of all time. I also got to hold the vic wirtz fly ball. It was a highlight much better than the basketball or football HOF which were very disappointing after Cooperstown. You can also sit on the bench that came out of Yankee Stadium that dates back to Babe Ruth. What a great place.
Tomahawkin (March 28th, 2012 9:35 pm): “The O-Vent-Brel Triple team will NOT Duplicate the years they all had last year, especially if any of the three has a nagging injury…
“Relievers seasons as well as pinch hitters are the hardest to predict!”
Well, okay. but —
Isn’t that what you just did yourself?
March 29th, 20128:37 am
Go Braves. I hope they all wear the Braves A hat on their HOF plaque. Was Warren Spahn a first ballot HOF’er?
March 29th, 20128:46 am
DOB (March 28th, 2012 7:31 pm): “That means I’m prickly on the same days you’re entirely unfunny. What a coincidence.”
Who’s trying to be funny, DOB?
Don’t make us laugh.
(Oh, that’s right — you don’t.)

Couch Tater, jimmy, and richbrave
Thanks for those poignant memories of lives lived to the soundtrack of bluegrass and the three fingered roll of Earl Scruggs.
Man does the time fly. Hard to believe my good friend GEORGE WINN is now pushing eighty. Still works every day though. And still pickin’ and grinnin’
March 29th, 20128:54 am
I can understand the pessimism surrounding the Braves 2012 season. Health concerns, lack of big moves, and so on…But for the life of me, I don’t understand the projections that have the Marlins going from 90 losses to 90 wins.
March 29th, 20128:58 am
Author Pat Conroy often speaks of the roll great vistas play in shaping the quality of his writing and, obviously, a certain Atlanta Braves beat / blog writer shares his opinion. Thank you for all the extras, such as the picture at 7:30.
March 29th, 20128:59 am
Re: your 2:12 post yesterday– no need to bite my head off, man. I was/am really, truly just interested as to why you changed your opinion about the Nationals finishing 2nd rather than the Braves… I don’t understand the remark about my “agenda.” I don’t have an agenda other than to blather about baseball on your blog. I’m not one of the nut jobs on here… Good grief.
Just signed up for the MLB Extra Innings package (yet again). Didn’t even raise their prices this year – at least on Comcast.
