Musician Arthur 'Guitar Boogie' Smith died last week of natural causes, just two days after his 93rd birthday. In 1955, Smith wrote a song "Feuding Banjos".

The song was made famous by its use in the movie "Deliverance" in 1972, under the title "DUELING Banjos".  But ironically, Smith almost TOOK IT FROM BEHIND, because the filmmakers never credited him as the composer.

Ultimately though, he made them SQUEAL LIKE PIGS when he sued them and won back royalties, in what became a landmark copyright infringement suit.

Smith's death completes the 'Death Comes in Threes' trifecta. Over the weekend we lost actor Mickey Rooney and comedian John Pinette.
