freightdawg Obit: Buck Owens (1929-2006) (33) RE: Obit: Buck Owens 25 Mar 06


Sorry to offend, me little guestie. I felt I was very gracious in my remarks about Buck. But I never saw Buck play the fiddle, or the banjo, (Clark excelled at both) and if Roy Clark was beneath the level of Chet Atkins in playing the guitar it was not by much. Buck Owens had a fine voice, and he might have played lead guitar some, but I never saw him do anything other than strum his red, white and blue guitar. And that includes tv shows other than Hee Haw.

Buck might have asked Roy to be his co-host, but I always felt in terms of personna and skill that Roy was the better entertainer.

I repeat...Buck Owens was a fine performer and entertainer. He accomplished far more than I had originally thought...his list of number 1 albums in that news story was impressive. And I appreciate his courage in standing up to the music producers of his day and coming out on top. That takes courage, but it also takes talent because if no one bought what he was selling he would have just faded away. We have lost a true talent and the ranks of pure singers just got a lot smaller.

I'll admit I'm off, little guestie, but not in ways that you think.
