That's one of the better-known clips of Roy "goofing" around. He was certainly one of the top-tier guitarists in history. His legend is true.
Great clips. They don't make TV like that anymore. I loved it when Roy put his foot on the coffee table and Felix about had a heart attack. And that Flamenco at the end... genius.
My father once met him, on a professional level, and said he was the most down to earth, humble celebrity he ever met, and he met many. Like Buck Owens, his legacy was somewhat tainted, I feel, by the cartoon donkey show. Neither are seen today as they should be, as burners of the board. Interestingly, my father met Buddy Rich around the same time, a guy with a TERRIBLE reputation that way, but Dad says he was downright gentlemanly and kind.

My father knew him in passing and I met him when I was too young to understand that I was in the presence of greatness. He lived on a houseboat on the DC waterfront.
