Cryin' Time

Buck Owens passed away this weekend. He's remembered mostly for his part in a cheesy syndicated TV show, and that's unfortunate because in his day the Buckster was a true groundbreaker in what was then called Country & Western. Buck's lead guitarist, the late Don Rich, was in his own right one of the unsung heroes of the Americana/alternative/progressive/outlaw/No Depression/X-Country movement.

For a better appreciation of Buck and the Buckaroos, a good place to start is here...
