    Very sad news. At the time it was on the air I wasn't into country, but I loved Roy's playing. He could do it all.

    Absurd talent and clearly one of the good guys.

    Another of my idols gone.

    One of my favorites that I'm not convinced received all the praise he deserved.

    I watched Roy on Hee Haw, and as a guest on The Johnny Carson show when I was a kid. Really opened my eyes as to what was possible with a guitar. His take on Flight Of The Bumblebee is worth seeking out on youtube, if you haven't seen it. Roy was a monster player.

    :(

    If it had strings, he could play the heck out of it. RIP, Roy.

    A big loss. He was talented and far more versatile than most of his audience realized, IMO.

    To me, Roy Clark was the SANTA CLAUS GUITARMAN...round, jolly and played like (good) hell!

    IMHO, Roy played Malaguena better than anyone. May he RIP.

    RIP Roy, and thanks for everything. What a loss for guitar, music, and everyone ever touched by his titanic talent and good nature. We've lost a giant :(

    Great loss. Never saw a bad word written about him. In interviews he seemed down to earth and decent. Just an incredible player. I think I will close my office door and spend the rest of the day watching Roy Clark on YT. RIP Roy.

    He could pick the starch out of a potato bug. Plus, great entertainer - check out his moves in this old black and white video of 12th Street Rag ('long about 0:38 or so)
