I was brought up on a lot of Roy Clark. He was a master of the banjo!

Rest In Peace, Roy and thank you for the many years of Saturday afternoon entertainment.

Picking and Grinnin.

Buck Owens, Jerry Reed and Roy Clark.

Jerry Reed had a solid music career.

RIP my friend.

Since you have not posted much lately, I convinced most here you cannot fish, fillet, or cook worth a shit, Sir.

He was not only a suberbly talented musician, but also a brilliant entertainer and a genuinely friendly human being. RIP, Sir.

Grew up watching "Hee Haw" and couldn't believe someone could move their fingers so fast. The whole crew is almost gone now- how sad that our kids will never get to enjoy them...

RIP sir

He was a big-deal back in the day. Great entertainment as well.

I read he could play 18 notes a second. He was incredible, and also a prolific jazz guitarist.

To say he was talented is like saying Neil Armstrong was just a pilot. Words don't adequately describe.

He was one of the best, would have made a great Bluegrass Boy in Monroe's band. I know he played with a lot of the guys who were in that outfit, like Chubby Wise, and wouldn't be surprised if he sat down in circle with Monroe himself on a few occasions.

RIP

I was a big fan of Roy Clark and Buck Owens growing up.

One of the best memories I have of my childhood was/is on Saturday nights after dinner we would head down to the basement/family room of my grandparents house to get ready to watch Hee Haw.

That was a great show that featured a ton of up and coming talented entertainers.

It was amazing listening to Buck Owens and Roy Clark sing. They had such different pitches to their voice but they went well together.

He seemed to always have such a great demeanor.
