    Gloom, despair, and agony on me. Roy was our hometown hero growing up in Appomattox.

    I watched him on TV countless times, and caught his show in Branson in about 1993-1994. Don't care what anyone says: he was an unbelievable musician, a great showman, and yet extremely down to earth, even on stage there. Another of my guitar heroes gone. :cry:

    What a talented man! I feel blessed to have lived in the same era as Roy. RIP Mr. Clark.

    Watching Roy and Buck (I still want his red white & blue guitar) on Hee Haw in the early 70s was part of my early music education, along with The Monkees, early Beatles, and Dad's greaser r&r 45 collection.
    It's sad to hear of his passing, but he will be remembered for a long time as one of the best.

    RIP, Roy. First saw him on Hee-Haw and then looked into him a little bit further - monster player. Heard he was a really nice guy, to boot.

    I can safely say that I have never seen anyone pick like that on a 12 string. Seeing that it's Roy I am not surprised but nonetheless blown away.

    His version of "Yesterday When I Was Young" always put a lump in my throat .

    Today I will spend a bit of time a-pickin' and a-grinnin'.

    Saaaaaa-lute!

    For such an accomplished and talented player, he was the opposite of pretentious.

    One of the first real GOOD guitarists I ever heard. God bless and rest in peace.

    At the end of the day it's his sense of humor I'll miss the most. The talent was just icing on the cake.

    RIP Roy. What a talent, I remember him on Hee Haw way back then. Quite a showman. From his playing style, I bet he was a big influence on Danny Gatton.
