I was surprised to see Steve Martin on American Idol last night playing the banjo of all things. Thinking it was a rare occasion, or something I was seeing for the first time I went online and checked YouTube. Sure enough there are numerous videos of him playing the banjo going waaaay back in time.
This one in particular caught my attention. I’ve always loved the Muppet Show, and after a couple minutes I actually started to remember watching this episode as a kid. At the time I had no idea who Steve Martin is (or what a banjo was for that matter) but I definitely remember the episode.
