I disagree with this move. The Foggy Mountain Boys were not Flatt & Scruggs, but their backing band. -- Dave C. 05:09, 16 July 2005 (UTC)

Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs each already have their own page. The band was "Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs, and the Foggy Mountain Boys" but most people call them (as a whole, not just the two leaders) "Flatt and Scruggs". The common threads between Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs were membership in Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys and this band. They never worked as a duo or a team with any other band. In other words, there really is no "Flatt and Scruggs" except in relation to the Foggy Mountain Boys. Cmadler 12:56, 16 July 2005 (UTC)

Fair enough. Since there is a redirect in place, I'm comfortable with your reasoning. -- Dave C. 18:13, 16 July 2005 (UTC)

First Sentence[edit]

The first sentence states they were active from the 40's to the 60's while the info box says they were active from the 50's -70's. If someone knows which it is it should probably be changed. 63.165.44.97 (talk) 18:50, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

In the "Biography" section (is that an appropriate section title for a band?) it suggests 1948 - 1969. I'm reluctant to make changes without a source, however. cmadler (talk) 14:46, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Questions[edit]

1. I noticed that the vast majority of the records of the band shows the name "Flatt and Scruggs" rather than "Foggy Mountain Boys". I assume the official name of the band should still be Foggy Mountain Boys. Has anybody a comment regarding this issue?

2. The band has been active since 1948. Aside from a single in 1952, is there a reason why no recordings are listed for the period between 1948 and 1957?

3. "Changin' times" and "Nashville airplane" are listed under 1968 but the discography of Earl Scruggs has them listed as 1969 and 1970. What dates are correct?

4. "Town and country" and "Sacred songs" are listed under 1966. http://www.discogs.com/artist/Flatt+%26+Scruggs shows them under 1965 and 1967. http://www.flatt-and-scruggs.com/disco.html shows "Sacred songs" under 1967. What are the correct dates?

The Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs Grand Ole Opry Show[edit]

I'm assumeing that "The Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs Grand Ole Opry Show" and "The Grand Ole Opry" are the same thing.
