Sadly, the legendary Roy Clark passed away at age 85 yesterday, 2018-11-15.
He was most famously known as the host of the television show “Hee Haw”, from 1969 through 1997. The show commanded a viewership of 30-million people during the 70’s. I remember it well, as my parents never missed a single episode. The “Pickin’ and Grinnin” segment, played along with his co-host Buck Owens, is burned into my brain forever.
His most well-known song is probably “Yesterday, When I Was Young”, but he also had 22 other top 40 Country hits on Billboard, with eight of them landing in the top 10.
He became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1987. In 2009, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, although he was a huge influence on Bluegrass music as well. Other genres he recorded and performed included Classical Guitar, Latin music, and Pop. The man was an awesome talent on both the guitar and banjo.
As a salute, Doctör Ivan has once again worked his magic, creating a wonderful wallpaper of Roy, complete with the “Hee Haw” logo.
