I could be mistaken, but I think Tom Gray is still alive and kickin' pickin' :)
thanks, my boss (also a banjo player) and i were talking about this yesterday trying to think through who was still around. gray is the one i couldn't remember from the original line up.

i only saw them for the first time a year after duffey passed, but got to see them several times afterwards with that lineup. they put on a great show. my dad liked them a lot, so i grew up hearing them a good bit.

"No movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad."
