Randy Scruggs, Award-Winning Musician and Songwriter, Dead at 64

Multi-award-winning guitarist, producer, songwriter and studio owner Randy Scruggs died Tuesday, April 17th, following a brief illness, according to Music Row. He was 64.
A four-time Grammy winner who earned trophies for his instrumental work from 1989 to 2001, Scruggs was named CMA Musician of the Year in 1999, 2003 and 2006. As a producer he led recordings by Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris, Levon Helm, Toby Keith, Alison Krauss and many others. The staggering list of artists on whose records he played included Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, George Strait, Bobby Bare, Charlie Daniels, Randy Travis, Vince Gill, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Ricky Skaggs, Tom T. Hall, Billy Joe Shaver, John Hartford, Vern Gosdin,Rosanne Cash, Pam Tillis, Marty Stuart, Bruce Hornsby, Miranda Lambert, Wilco and the Dixie Chicks.
Randy Scruggs was born in 1953, the younger brother of musician Gary Scruggs and older brother to Steve Scruggs, who died in 1992. Their parents were banjo great Earl Scruggs and pioneering business manager Louise Scruggs, who passed away in 2012 and 2006, respectively. At just 9 years old, Scruggs appeared alongside his father and partner Lester Flatt on the pair's popular syndicated TV series. Only four years later he was participating in his first recording session.
As a rock duo, Randy and Gary Scruggs recorded two albums for Vanguard Records in 1969 and '70, then formed the progressive country-rock band the Earl Scruggs Revue with the elder musician at the helm. A 1979 single by the group, "I Could Sure Use the Feeling," peaked in the Top 30.
In the early Eighties, when Earl Thomas Conley became the first-ever artist to top the country chart with four consecutive singles from the same LP, three of those songs were co-written by the artist with Scruggs. The pair also notched two additional Number Ones as co-writers. Others who cut his songs included Sawyer Brown ("Shakin'," "Out Goin' Cattin'"), Billy Joe Royal ("Love Has No Right") and Deana Carter ("We Danced Anyway" and "There's No Limit"). In the Eighties and Nineties, more than 100 of his songs were cut by major acts from Martina McBride to bluegrass band the Seldom Scene.
The 1989 recording of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Will the Circle Be Unbroken II, recorded at the musician's Scruggs Sound facility in Nashville, earned him another CMA award, for Album of the Year. Don Williams, Jason & the Scorchers, Charley Pride, Tanya Tucker, Andy Williams, Ronnie Milsap and Anne Murray were among those who also cut material there.
In 1998, Reprise Records released the exceptional all-star album Crown of Jewels. Credited as Scruggs' solo effort, the LP featured contributions from several artists with Emmylou Harris, Iris DeMent, John Prine, Joan Osborne, Trisha Yearwood, Amy Grant, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Delbert McClinton and Earl Scruggs among them.
Scruggs' guitar playing can be heard on the Johnny Cash: Forever Words project and on recent recordings by Loretta Lynn, Mo Pitney, Pistol Annies, Kellie Pickler, Bobby Bare and many others.
Scruggs is survived by his wife Sandy, his daughter, Lindsey, and his brother, Gary. No funeral service is planned but details of a memorial event are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Contributions in Randy Scruggs' name may be made to MusicCares or the T.J. Martell Foundation.

It makes Cy wonder, does Clavalin borrow books out of the large print section of the library?

Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs fell out over Earl's interest in pursuing other kinds of music, wanting to play with his sons.

Snippy, we shouldn't be nasty, in view of what our good buddy, Clavalin has had to endure, sorry, Clavalin.

Jhoon Rhee, Athletic Ambassador of Taekwondo, Dies at 86

Jhoon Rhee, a grandmaster of the Korean martial art taekwondo, who helped popularize it in America, taught hundreds of congressmen how to spar and trained with Muhammad Ali and Bruce Lee, died on April 30 in Arlington, Va. He was 86.

Mr. Rhee also taught celebrity clients, like the action film star Chuck Norris, the motivational speaker Tony Robbins and Muhammad Ali. Ali, who died in 2016, credited Mr. Rhee with teaching him a spectacularly swift punching technique that helped him knock out Richard Dunn in 1976.
Mr. Rhee told Black Belt magazine in 1996 that he had learned the technique from Bruce Lee, whom he met in 1964 at an international karate event in Long Beach, Calif. Each was performing demonstrations there and they became fast friends.

Oh no!

Margot Kidder, the actress perhaps best known as the colleague and love interest of mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent in the "Superman" movies of the late 1970s and early 1980s, has died. She was 69.

Kidder's death was first reported by TMZ but confirmed by the Franzen Davis funeral home in Livingston, Montana.

"The actress and activist passed away on Sunday, May 13th, 2018 at her home," the funeral home said. A cause of death was not given.

Born Margaret Ruth Kidder in Yellowknife, Canada, her breakout role was the hard-nosed reporter Lois Lane in 1978's "Superman," alongside Christopher Reeve as the titular caped crusader.

The actress waged battle with bipolar disorder for years and was an outspoken proponent of mental health reform and other political causes.

Sad really. She had something deeper than many of her peers in an industry that tosses women away when their looks, or their bodies no longer draw lots of fans to the box office. But Margo drew from her private well of talrnts. All her own.

Probably that had much to do with where she hailed from. Yellow Knife, Northwest Territory, Canada*. Everything ya wanna know about Yellow Knife (Or not!) is right here, just follow this lynch here:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellowknife

And rem ember, lyphe iz phor them what livz. Every bodie els go away!

*AKA:Canuckistan

I never knew she was from the Canuckistanian sticks. I just knew that she was a HAWT Lois Lane. Oh, and that she later had a lot of troubles.

Tom Wolfe. Author. Chronicler of culture. New York Times reporter. His distinct eye, and direct, immediate style shocked and shook up the 60's life...

The "Electric Kool Aid Acid Test" had a definite impact... Ken Kesey's "Merry Pranksters" road trip across the USA. If you haven't read it before, do it now!
