    Never can be too much discussion on Buck's contributions to Teles, songwriting, and as band leader.

    Bill Hullett started a fantastic thread on "Buck, Don, & Teles......." way back in 2005.

    Waay back in 1974 while I was a student at Ariz State I ws a waiter in a fancy restaurant. Up drives this big ol Caddy with longhorns on the hood/pistols for door handles and sivler dollars embedded in the dash. Out stepsa Buck Owens and I get to wait on him. absolute gentleman....quiet not flashy (cept for the caddy lol). Anyway the house bought him a 70 dollar bottle of wine.(big buks back then) When I presented the wine to him to pour a small taste like you do......he says "No thanks I don't want wine" so I did the right thing...recorked it and went out and put it in my car for later.:mrgreen:

    cheers ce24

    Very nice, really enjoy your playing on both guitar and pedal. A very good tribute. Buck and the gang would be proud.

    I saw Buck out on the 99 not too long before he passed he was out for cruise in his Bentley convertible. I passed him not really paying attention, realized it was Buck, I then slowed down and looked over to see if it was him, he mouthed yeah it's Buck, smiled, and gave me a wave. He was always cool. He put on a big show for us all out at Heart Park and had a lot of big names there years ago all the entertainment was free on him. He also helped with the Marine Toys 4 Tots program at Christmas time at the Civic Auditorium. He believed in giving back to the place where he hung his hat. A very long time ago, we used to do some work unrelated to music for him, he was always a gentleman to deal with, and gave good instructions as to what he expected.

    Howdy,

    I "discovered" Buck in 1999-shortly after I bought my first Tele and discovered the TDPRI. Grew up in the 70s and took him for granted as the guy on Hee Haw. I've been a big fan since '99 and enjoy his music. I sure miss Buck & Don!

    Here's one where Buck comes in and takes a break after the steel about 1:30. Buck played right until the end. He could do a lot more than he showed in the video, but it shows he's comfortable doing a break.

    I always thought he was really corny on Hee Haw...with that big grin. But that was his schtick for the show. I learned to really enjoy his songs as I got older.
