Saturday Matinee: We lost a couple of greats this week. Jerry Reed & Bill Melendez.


“Amos Moses” was my favorite Jerry Reed song. My younger sister had the 45rpm record, and I didn’t.  (But I knew all the words, and she didn’t.)

Chet Atkins is a treasure, and Jerry Reed was a classic. There’s more of J.R.’s Pickin’ n’ Grinnin’ at RockHoppers. (Dan, you beat me to it!) God bless Jerry.

Here’s Chet Atkins with Suzy Bogguss.

And here’s Suzy Boggus with Chet Atkins.

Bill Melendez.  You’ve seen his stuff.  You’ve heard his stuff.  Seems kinda appropriate that there is no video, and I relive part of my childhood whenever I hear this song.
