My Brush with Greatness

It was the late 70’s.  My band, Gaskin’s Switch was booked as an opening act
for the Earl Scruggs Review playing at Drury College in Springfield, Mo. 

Earl had his sons and the rest of the band unload and set up gear. 
While they were doing that I noticed Earl sitting in the bleachers watching what was going on. 
Well, I grabbed my hand made Ericson banjo and sat down beside him.  In a few minutes he
was telling tales, playing my banjo and I was picking harmony on his pre-war Mastertone. 

What a nice, down to earth fellow he was.  BTW, our show sucked pretty bad
but the Review kicked the house down.  Picked up a couple of banjo licks to boot!
