What in the Sam Hill is going on?
Donna Summer last week. Robin Gibb (we're now down to one solitary Bee Gee). Earl Scruggs a couple of months ago. Goober.
And now one of the Dillard boys. He's with the banjo, above, as one of the Darlin' Boys, as they were known on The Andy Griffith Show. The Dillard's standup bass stud (with pipe) died last year.
"We Shall Meet But We Shall Miss Him..." Sing it boys...
Sigh...Everybody hang in there...
