    He was an incredibly talented axe man but was also pretty versatile. Here's a great rendition of Orange Blossom Special that's pretty entertaining but also showcases his skills as a fiddle player.

    Ride Easy Roy.

    Thanks for the songs/vids fellas. Same here as WW; w/Dad once a week for an hour. Like Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom and Disney on sundays.

    Ghost riders was simply superb and Glen on the 12 was phenomenal.

    Orange Blossom and pickinanagrinnin - such great examples of his virtuosity and comfort with his chosen instrument.

    I once saw Roy on a live variety show (not sure which one). Halfway through his performance he broke a string, B string I think. When the tune came back to the head, he played the melody an octave lower using the remaining strings. He was a pro's pro.

    ETA: The tune was a standard, maybe Tizol/Ellington's Caravan, although I'm not certain about that.

    I was sooooo lucky to see Clarence Gatemouth Brown at the Ballard Underground soon before it closed as a nightclub. We saw lots of great acts there, including Johnny Winter on my first visit there in the early 1980s.

    Had to look that up, not well versed in seattle. When did it close ? did it turn into http://ghostlighttheatricals.org/ ?

    Never got to see Clarence Live but saw KWS last summer in a very venue he ripped it up

    At least 10 years ago, likely quite a bit before that. It was a cool venue, an old fraternal lodge basement of some sort. Ballad Underground got some great acts. Tables were arranged in a squared off U-shape around the dance floor, sort like a theater in the round. I saw Sonny Rollins play there in the late 1980s.
