When I was a kid my father took me to see Roy Clark in concert on Long Island.

I did not think I would enjoy it. I was mistaken. The man could play....

Did he do clownery, too, or was it just more serious playing?
He tells in the interview, that started clowning around in his early years as a some kind of defence mechanism. I think he elaborated that an artistry.

He cracked jokes in between playing. It was a long time ago. Late '70's....

Should I believe here to the synchronicity? - a few days ago, I felt need to write this salutation to Roy Clark - now he is passed away.

"Synchronicity (German: Synchronizität) is a concept, first introduced by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, which holds that events are "meaningful coincidences" if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related. "

Unknown. You just brought for me with topic a very good memory - that also involved my father who is also deceased. So thank you. :D

I did not even know Roy Clark was ill. He has been off my radar for a long time. All I can say in his passing is that he was a lot more than most give him credit for. He was gifted.

When I was young, I dismissed him and Glen Campbell as playing music either for hicks (Hee-Haw) or MOR stuff my parents liked. I had no idea, really, until the internet, that they were both extremely gifted guitarists. I respect Roy's talents, but I doubt I'd ever buy any of his music. Same goes for Glen.
Glen was a sought after studio musician, hired by the Beach Boys to replace Brian on tour and also was a partner with the Wrecking Crew on Pet Sounds.
