Topic: Roy Clark

Roy Clark died today from an illness. He was extremely talented and if it had strings he could play it.  Rest in peace . You will be missed.

Re: Roy Clark

Roy was one of my Dad's all-time favorite guitarists, and he'd hush the room whenever Roy was on TV. To CG's comment, Dad would often say that Roy could play a mop if that's all there was around. He's a memorial clip from an appearance on "The Odd Couple".

Re: Roy Clark

My Gram knew him. She was old school Irish Protestant who had few compliments to give, and little good to say. She had no complaints against Mr. Clark.
That my Gram had no complaints against someone she knew is the highest compliment I know how to give.

Re: Roy Clark

The last duet I saw him play was with Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown; it was an old Duke Ellington standard called "Take The A Train". Roy Clark's musicianship knew no bounds and he had the uncanny ability to adapt himself to anyone's style and make the tune sound twice as good. CG is right: If it had strings, he could play it. Did he and Glen Campbell ever perform together?

RIP, Mr. Clark!

Re: Roy Clark

A friend of mine played bass for Roy Clark for a time. The habit of that friend was to show up an hour and a half before Showtime to warm up. That was also Roy Clark's habit.

They both liked to play jazz standards, and began to play together while they warmed up. Another band member said the warm up was better than what they played on stage, and that they should play  a set of jazz standards on strage.

Roy Clark stopped him right there and said, "These folks have worked hard to earn the money to buy tickets to a country music concert. So we are going to give them the very best Country concert we know how to play."
