Will we ever see a REUNION CONCERT?
Those in-the-know in Country/Bluegrass Music realize what these pioneers did. The "Revue" broke ground and crushed barriers.
The (new country) music we hear today is a direct result (if not rip-off) of the talent and vision that the Earl Scruggs Revue was thrilling fans with over twenty years ago.
Who wouldn't travel great distances to see Earl and the Boys once again with the likes of Vasaar Clements, Jim Murphy, Josh Graves, and either Jody or Taylor (or both) on drums.
Imagine the publicity a concert of this magnitude would receive from "Country Music Television" -- do you think CMT wouldn't jump at the chance to broadcast LIVE, a performance featuring these Bluegrass Giants playing Foggy Mountain Breakdown, Bugle Call Rag, Everybody Wants to go to Heaven (Earl playing slide-with-his-comb), Gary belting out T for Texas, Randy bringing a hush over an audience of thousands with Both Sides Now ...
A chance to once again hear Earl's introduction to Flint Hill Special, "I was born 'n raised in North Carolina..."
I'll bet Sting and Elton would love to make guest appearances as well.
How 'bout it?
