Earls We Have Known

If there is no hurricane this weekend, then there will at least continue to be a storm of overblown stories. It makes us think of some other Earls in  history.

  • “Duke of Earl” – Gene Chandler’s No. 1 hit from 1962.
  • “My Name is Earl” – The sitcom starring Jason Lee, still in syndication.
  • Earl Monroe – “Earl the Pearl” from the New York Knicks.
  • Earl Warren – Chief Justice of the United States, 1953- 1969.
  • Earl Simmons – DMX to you.
  • Earl Scruggs – Banjo whiz and onetime partner of Lester Flatt.
  • Steve Earle – Rock and country singer and activist, who is welcome when he comes around
  • Earl Klugh – The smooth jazz guitarist who has released a slew of albums.
    Goodbye Earl – Dixie Chicks’ murder victim.
  • “Goodbye Earl” – Dixie Chicks’ murder victim.
  • Earl Scheib – Once home of the $99.95 auto paintjob, went out of business nationwide in July. Maybe because of a hurricane.
