    Buck Owens & The Buckaroos - great - the most Fender-escent of all (non-surf) bands.

    The Beatles thought Buck Owens and the Buckaroos were FAB!

    His influence went clear across to Ocean and, back!

    They were a big part of my own childhood.
    Later on with HeeHaw I paid more attention to Barbi Benton. :D:D

    Buck himself was a pretty darned good picker. When he was playing local before he hit the big time, you'd see him grinding out the lead breaks Friday nights at a local place called the Blackboard. It was one of the two stops responsible for most of the kids being born in Bakersfield, Tex's Barrel House being the other.

    Not a very good recording but you can catch a glimpse of Buck playing a break at the Crystal Palace and he was getting on in years here. (The intro is a little subtle)

    Dim lights, thick smoke and loud loud music.

    I never made the connection on that one thanks! Also hearing The Carpenters "Top of The World" on that too.

    I always thought (and maybe George Harrison said it?) they got the Feel Fine riff from here

    Tyler Mahan Coe did two hours + about Buck Owens and Don Rich on his Cocaine and Rhinestones podcast.

    I HIGHLY recommend it.

    “Dangerous” Don rich! I can still remember the day I heard he’d died 7/17/74 I was nine years old and in love with all things Honky-tonk. That one really hurt me. On occasion I pass through his hometown and like everywhere else he’s a legend at home as well. His Headstone reads “Always smiling”

    Oh yeah when I was first starting out and the country shows would come on TV catching Don Rich with Buck had me glued to the TV. Don's accident and death really tore up Buck they were so close and Dons so key to the Bakersfield Sound Buck had created and took a lot to get him back out. Hee Haw was good therapy.

    I recently discovered that there is a Buck Owens YouTube channel that has all the Buck Owens shows on it

    I’m working my way through them and would recommend them

    Luther Perkins hooked me on the beauty of a Tele but Don and Buck were not far behind!

    Thank you TD.

    I'm a wannabe, but thanks to my dad I think I have Bakersfield music in my blood lol.

    My first memories of Buck were I think also Hee Haw related, like others here. He didn't play much lead guitar, but when he did, it sure got my attention.

    I didn't know he was a formidable guitarist until he cut loose on one of Don's old solos, in his own style, on one episode. I gained even more respect for him and I've paid real close attention to his music since that moment in my youth.

    Hunt this down on utube if you want to hear taking the lead on some instrumental stuff.
    If you listen carefully on some of the live albums, you can pick out Buck & Don doing some neat twin lead work.
