Banjo Man Didn't Miss Candlestick Park Farewell

Iconic 49ers banjo playing-fan was present for 'Stick finale

A come-from-behind win, a last-minute interception to seal it, and Candlestick Park's tenure as the San Francisco 49ers' home stadium is over.

And Banjo Man was there to pluck it away.

Stacy Samuels, the cape-wearing, 63-year-old banjo-playing institution, has played "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" at every 49er home game since 1983.

Would he miss the finale on Monday night? You must be joking. 

The Man

Fansided recorded the final plucking for posterity -- but just the final plucking at The Stick. Levi's Stadium will have more of the same, we reckon.
