Subject: RE: Is bluegrass an attitude?
There's a story that Sam Bush tells of his meeting the great Bill Monroe.

Sam was excited, as any young player would be to meet a hero. Bush was even more thrilled to know that the master had actually heard of Bush and his music when Monroe asked, "You fellas play that...what'dya call it....New Grass?"

Sam said that, yes, that's what they were calling it.

"Yeah...." says Monroe, ".....I don't like that stuff"
