Well, he had a long life and he seemed to be pretty happy.

Yeah, he did, and I'm glad about that. I'm just sad for the rest of us. He was a big part of my childhood musical immersion.

See you are proving to be a valuable friend already.
I used to watch Hee Haw as a kid and quite liked old Buck. Sure beats some of the stuff on tv these days (does that make me sound old?).

I loved Hee Haw. All those shows were great. I was a huge fan of The Waltons (yeah, I know), and the original Saturday Night (which was NOT called Saturday Night Live until much, much later). Not to mention Star Trek. :)


I don't even watch telly anymore. I keep basic cable for the Red Sox games, but if I can find a way to get the games online for less, I'm getting rid of it. I'm keeping the TV, of course, for DVDs of shows I DO like, so I don't have to be bothered with the commercials. Family Guy, for instance. I can't get enough of that show. And it's set in Rhode Island!

Okay I admit I watched the Waltons too.
But the question I now have for you is how the heck do you feel about Johnny Damon playing for the Yankees!!

That about sums it up. Although I'm not-so-sekritly glad he had to shave and cut his hair.

Me too. And although my father was a Yankees fan, I'll have you know that I owned a Red Sox sweater as a teenager. I think it had number nine on it for Freddy Lynn. He and Jim Rice were huge at the time. Too bad they never won the World Series. I guess the curse was still strong in those days.

Whee, the Glimmer Twins! Those were the days.

One of the fondest memories I have of childhood was watching "Hee Haw" with my Dad. We never missed it, every Saturday around 7pm-ish. My sister and my Mom were more Lawrence Welk, but Dad and I were all about Hee Haw. I SO remember loving Buck Owens. I thought he seemed like such a nice man, and funny, and I loved the warmth of his voice. And his red, white, and blue guitar. And the songs he sang. In his stead there is Dwight Yokam, but there will never be another Buck Owens. Thank you, sir, for giving me and my Dad such a strong bonding experience, perhaps the strongest one we've ever shared through the years. May you be pickin' and grinnin' eternally.

Dwight Yoakum! Yes, he does indeed carry on the legacy. I used to watch Hee Haw, too, but even before that, my mum would play Buck's songs on 45s: "Act Naturally" (which was actually covered by the Beatles, not the other way around), "Tiger By the Tail", "Together Again", all those good ones. People who think modern country music (greats like Lyle Lovett and Dwight Yoakum, and Reba McIntyre and Garth Brooks notwithstanding) is anywhere close to what was around in the old days is sadly mistaken, IMO. It's like saying the Backstreet Boys are as good as the Beatles.
