    Just saw that. Bummer. One of the most multi-talented musicians in our time.

    Even as a hard rock/heavy metal guitarist in my younger days, I still had the utmost respect for his playing and abilities, and would try on occasion to learn some of his stuff. RIP.

    Certainly in the conversation. I wouldn't limit him to just that though, he was a fine fiddle player as well as mandolin and banjo. If it has strings he could shred on it.

    I don't know if anyone here remembers but he and Glen Campbell used to be on the Carson show and they would do a duet of sorts , one standing behind the other and just one guitar between them. Pretty fun to watch, its probably on youtube somewhere. Growing up we were often at my Grandparents house and we would always watch Hee Haw, preceded my the Lawrence Welk show. Looking back I guess its where I gained my appreciation for genuine country music. Saw some of the CMA's last night on TV and didn't recognize what is suppose to pass as "country music" sounded more like pop rock to me.

    one of the great American entertainer/musicians

    thanks for the laughs and the great music
  9. He was super talented, not my type of music but no denying his mad-skills.

    He was probably the most famous person I've ever met and he could not have been nicer or more sincere to talk to for those few minutes.

  11. When I was a young boy my parents used to let me stay up late when certain musicians were coming on Johnny Carson.

    Roy was at the top of that list. RIP sir.
