Pappy and I were rocking to him last night. There was an infomercial some years back with Jerry and M-m-mel peddling fish mousse bait. It was awesome. RIP

The Claw!
My friend has this instructional guitar video . The dude (sweet hat!) tries to demonstrate "the Claw" technique, which Jerry Reed originated, and cannot claw anywhere near as good as Jerry did.

RIP, Snowman.

the worst thing about jerry reed dying is that most people think his only notable songs are the novelty ones & so that's all he'll be remembered for.

i recommend the jerry compilation "here i am". loads of rockabilly stuff from the 50s.

I'm sensing a I, IV, V's all Jerry Reed show in the very near future.

Yes!!!

Damn, didn't know he wrote 'Guitar Man', my fave song by far from '68 Comeback (the show not the band). I was just talkin about Bama McCall the other day, too. RIP.

I hardly think that's the worst thing about him dying.

Joe Dirty and I drank with a guy who toured with Jerry for quite a bit in the 80's one night. He said that when in Canada Jerry would buy truckloads of Canadian beer because it was stronger. "He liked to keep a good buzz" and used the word "Wildman" to describe Jerry more than a few times during our conversation (special thanks to Joe for reminding me of the word the guy used to describe Jerry).

Does suck.
Here he is in the early 1960s doing "Wabash Cannonball" and, in color!, "Guitar Man."

"When You're Hot, You're Hot"

He wasn't afraid to do a cover: here he is at the Bottom Line in 1992 with Chet Atkins doing "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"

Also with Chet Atkins, doing "Something"

I didn't like his monster hit "She Got The Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)" anymore than I did Chuck Berry's "My Ding-A-Ling" but here's the former:

And here's the animated Jerry Reed playing himself on Scooby Doo!

Here's a hilarious version of "Amos Moses" with Jerry, drunk as fuck, looking like a hobo who just fell offa the train and pestering the audience, backed by a dorky-disco-funk backup band at some sort of lakeside picnic park party.



I could watch this over and over again.

"How did I get in to this trouble?"

"You wanna be in show business?"

"Thank you, Brenda!"

"Ya'll can clap, we're through now! Heeelloooo!"

Okay, less drunk and more dressed up and younger... With Porter and Dolly!



D'ya think he titty-fucked Dolly after this?

I have no doubt.
