Yeah, we've truly lost a great one. I grew up watching "Hee Haw" every week for years, and I was always impressed with Roy Clark. He always came across as a warm, friendly, classy guy and a great entertainer. My dad had the 45 single of "Yesterday, When I Was Young" and both my parents were very fond of that song. One question I have about the song: Being that the song has such profound lyrics and such a powerful message about lost youth and regret, it would seem a natural to be somebody's choice for a Long Distance Dedication (maybe as a way to apologize to somebody for something in the past). Can somebody in the know tell me whether this song was ever played as an LDD?

When people come out with lists such as the greatest guitar players of all time,they overlook people like Roy Clark and Glen Campbell. One thing about Roy Clark was that he had a great sense of humor,I remember the Late Night with David Letterman show where Roy washed his pickup truck in Tulsa and Dave would check in from time to time to see how he was doing.
