    I've always wondered what color that Jaguar was. It looked like silver on the black and white TV.

    Roy really did enjoy himself. This video kind of reminds me of Victor Borge. It's the amazing talent, but punctuated with comedy to appeal to the general public.

    I was intrigued by the 25 foot coil cord wrapped around him. I remember those.

    Long before I picked up the guitar I admired Roy Clark.

    Yeah, that man could play.

    But he also knew his audience and being a true entertainer gave them what they wanted.

    Switch over to the thread "Mo knobs, mo problems" and we'll have come full circle. :)

    Roy was one of the best musicians that ever walked the earth. Sad day when he passed.

    A real guitar player's guitar player. As I kid I saw him on Hee Haw and he'd show up on Glenn Campbell's show - those two could just rip it up together! But Roy, he was special. And I think the fact that he was such a natural entertainer and singer really overshadowed how great a guitar player he really was. Thanks for putting this one out there and posting another clip of Roy, Papa Joe.

    Always did like Roy Clark. But the only time I could get any part of my body to move as fast as his right hand was when the outhouse was way, way, out back.:D.
    Thanks for the memories PJ.
