“The Devil Went Down to Georgia” – Thanks, Taz

Posted by Joe Alonzo, Director of eDiscovery/Computer Forensics at Glenmont Group

Joel “Taz” DiGrigorio, co-writer of the epiq country hit “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, was involved in a fatal car crash earlier this week on Interstate 40 in Tennessee.

As with a few of my colleagues at The Glenmont Group, I label myself a music junky.  I enjoy a wide variety of music, just about anything you can imagine.

Country music is what occupies the least amount of space in my iTunes library, but hold a few quintessential country hits close to heart.  Even if you’re not a country music fan, you’ve surely heard these songs at one point:

“One Bourbon, Once Scotch, One Beer”, most popular version by George Thorogood

“Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks

“Ring of Fire” by Johnny Cash

“Family Tradition” by Hank Williams Jr

And last but certainly not least, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” by Charlie Daniels Band.

As you head to your local pub this weekend and possibly take a listen to “The Devil Went Down to Georgia:, keep old Taz in your thoughts.  Maybe give him a silent toast and ‘thank you’ for helping create a fiddle-playing song that is still as fun to listen to today as it was in the 80’s.
