The Guitar Man is gone

Jerry Reed, one of my favorite voices from my childhood, passed away yesterday at the age of 71.  Probably just a month ago, I got a cd of his greatest hits and the husband asked if he was still living and I said yes.  My kids all know who he is; “Smokey and the Bandit” is available on DVD y’all.  He was such a good songwriter and guitar player.  He released his latest album, a live one, in 2005.

Rest easy, Jerry.  You  and Chet can get back to pickin’ together.

  1. Hi Helen

    Wow, I remember Smokey & The Bandit. That was a while way back when…

    I’m just writing to ask for your addy so that I can send you your PIF gift that I promised you this time last year (or thereabouts). It’s been nearly 365 days since I signed up for the PIF exchange and thought it was time to send mine off.

    Hope all is well & speak to you again soon..Bernie
