RIP Dr. Starling and thank you.

 

No words... this one stings.

Wow, what a blast from the past. Grew up in the DC area and spent many a good Thurs nite with friends & pitchers listening to the Scene, many of whom became Grammy famous. Dobro player Mike Auldridge, aka Larry Legend, was always taunted by band members for wearing Levis with creases like a knife-blade.  Mandolinist John Duffy, master of the eyeball-bending bowling shirt, spent time backing up Bill Munroe, the father of bluegrass. Starling himself had a voice of pure honey. Hilarious banter and great musicianship.

 

Thanks for the post (and Post article is worth a read too).
