Roy had tremendous talent and made great faces.
Oh yea , you bet ..... The Man .. one of my original inspirations
I miss his shows, he haw was a weekly staple in our house for many years. I was so young I would be in tears laughing every single time the fence came up and smacked someone on the butt.
I remember watching HeeHaw to see him play.

Roy is awesome! Here's some Merle Travis...just because
I just love all the great guys they used to have on TV, the golden age for sure.
Why don't we have a show like this now? MTV and these other shows are just garbage. We could use a good old HeHaw kind of show.
Never seen this'un.....so good! Thanx
There's great guys out there now that could pull that off.
Because you can't rap to that stuff. Hollywood isn't interested in us old white guys anymore. They started filtering us out long ago. Check it out - Hee Haw, The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, Petticoat Junction, The Glen Campbell Show, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, etc. were all cancelled around the same time.....
I was lucky enough to see Roy live in a little dive bar in Topeka KS. I always appreciated the fact that you can hear him make the occasional flub---and recover from it---which tells me that he always played to the utmost of his ability.
That, and the faces!
When I saw Roy on TV was the first time I realized that the guitar player could be an entertainer as well as a musician. I loved the faces he pulled and the way his tongue was always sticking out.
Unfortunately as a young man growing up in the 60's in a more urban environment it wasn't "cool" to watch HeeHaw. Looking back, the list of incredible talent I missed was enormous. Thankful now for YouTube.
I love watching old Roy videos
He always looks like he's either holding in a fart or just let one go
Love the Merle and son picking. It don't get any better than that. Maybe if Chet had sat in with them.
They may not be on “TV” but the fact that you can pull up footage of just about any player since the camera was invented was just unfathomable 20 yrs ago.
In my stupid youth I never liked HeeHaw, not my style at all. Give me The Beach Boys, Jan and Dean not Roy Clark and Heaven forbid, not Buck Owens. Even through my teens and young adult hood it was CSN&Y, Hendrix, Janis, Jefferson Airplane. Even when I found country it was the bad boys back then not the traditional.
I was much older when I realized what I had missed, just how great Roy Clark was and the other traditional country artists. Besides being a great guitar player, Roy had a stage presence and humor that was un matched. I have also read that he was a genuinely nice guy, something that could not be said about many artists.
Thanks for posting.
Thanks for that! Roy's talent is beyond words.
Buck was no slouch, either.
