Country music great, virtuoso musician and Hee Haw star Roy Clark has passed away at age 85. He died this morning from complications from pneumonia at home in Tulsa, OK. As anyone who watched him Saturday nights on series Hee-Haw — which he co-hosted with Buck Owens first on CBS and then in syndication during the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s — knows, Clark was a master of many instruments, from banjo and guitar to mandolin and fiddle. If it had strings, he could play it. His hits included “The Tips of My Fingers,” “Yesterday When I Was Young,” “Come Live with Me” and “If I Had It to Do All Over Again.”

Roy, you’ll missed. Rest in peace. Check out some of his music, and his serious chops, below.
