The great Earl Scruggs passed away yesterday at the age of 88 at his home in Nashville, Tennessee. The banjo-playing legend, who helped shaped modern country music (and who was incredibly progressive for his time with an openness to exploring emerging music and playing with musicians like The Byrds, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez), will be greatly missed. Check out some of our favorite videos of him after the jump.
