    Roy was a remarkably friendly man. During the Huck Finn festival at Victorville one year, he was doing some stuff on a smaller stage in the afternoon, even though he was going to be a headliner on the big stage later in the evening. He did a question and answer thing so I asked him about Bobby Thomson who did a lot of the banjo work on Hee Haw. When I asked the question, Roy asked me to come up on stage and we talked back and forth in front of the audience for about five or ten minutes about Bobby. (this was during my banjo phase :D) He was just genuinely nice. I will miss him, and am grateful that I had the opportunity to talk to him. My wife took a pic of us together, but I'm not sure I want to post it, at least not right now.

    I just heard this on the radio. Sad news. He was up there with Chet Atkins in my book.

    Definitely sad news. I watched Roy on so many shows growing up. He was a unique and multi-talented individual.

    Very sad. He really contributed to getting young kids interested in guitar. Hee Haw was a staple in my house. When I started losing my hair, I would joke to my wife that I was going to have to get some "Shaft Style" hats like Roy wore when he had his hair transplant. RIP.

    Sad he is gone. I’m embarrassed to admit I did begin to appreciate him till I was much older in life.

    I take some comfort in the fact that he was one of those great performers who lived a full life to the age of 85 and did not leave us early like so many do....Still a big loss...RIP Roy

    Oh man, that stings almost as much as when Roy Rogers passed.
    One of the true Greats.
