  1. I've become a big fan of both The Monroe Brothers & Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys. I read a biography last year; he was such a fascinatingly complex character.

    1. Was lucky enough to see the 80s incarnation of Bill & his Bluegrass Boys in Honolulu of all places, at the East-West Center if I recall correctly. . . .
