According to Yahoo (music.yahoo.com) Buck Owens has passed away.
For people like me who are fans of traditional country, this is a real tragedy since he was far more than just the host of Hee Haw. It's hard to overstate just how good he really was as both a vocalist and as a guitarist during his prime. I'll certainly be pulling out the turntable and the old Buckaroos albums tonight.
