Steve's Breakdown

According to the good folks at "No Depression," the music magazine for our times, comedian Steve Martin (who hails from Orange County, California) is making a banjo album, due out in 2009. He's a pretty good bluegrass picker, as you'll see in this 2006 Letterman performance in which he appears alongside Earl Scruggs playing "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," which Scruggs says he wrote in about 15 minutes in 1949. Those of a certain age will remember it from "Bonnie and Clyde."
