Reed was 71. i saw him play guitar at a little festival in Jackson, Mississippi in the very early '70s. through my drug/alcohol induced fog my ears picked up. i walked to the front of the stage. my thoughts were, "holy crap this dude can play" not only country but some killer blues AND old style ROCK & ROLL. he was ripping it up on an old beat up Strat and (i think) a Delux Reverb.
his acting skills, IMHO, ended with the 1st Smokey & The Bandit but i still enjoyed his deadpan/sorta dry humor.
Jerry Reed, another one that will be missed but still rolls around in my memory
In the never ending struggle to keep the water flowing.... The Poo Poo Cowboy rides again!!!
That is truly sad to hear , The saddest part is there is going to be a lot more sad news like that in the next 5 to 10 years . Most of the music greats are all in thier sixties and not getting any younger.
