    Damn. That guy ripped. Roy Clark, Jerry Reed and Chet Atkins were early influences of mine.
    Rest Easy, man.

    Rest in peace.
    Roy may have played country but he had the most rocking sideburns I ever saw.

    Damn.. I love watching him play guitar, the man could pick some strings. Rest in peace my friend. You brought me many years of enjoyment watching you on TV as a kid. RIP

    Another Big Guitar God of the 60s.... gone.

    "Rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb, you know better but I know him
    Like I told you, what I said, steal your face right off your head

    Now he's gone, now he's gone, Lord he's gone, he's gone
    Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track
    He's gone, he's gone and nothin's gonna bring him back, he's gone ...."

    --Grateful Dead.
