Ray Price dead

16 Dec

I had heard Friday that he’d been sent home (or would be soon) to die.  This legend lived just down the road all of these years.  I can’t wait to see what Willie will have to say.  They were buddies.

One of the last living connections to Hank Williams

America has lost another piece of the pie.  A legend is dead.

Rest in Peace, Ray Price, thanks for the music

    Wow, there were a lot of old greats but no one could do a song like Mr. Price in my opinion. He was my favorite of the old time country musicians.

    And we have Taylor Swift and all these other talentless, image is everything entertainers to replace these irreplaceable legends.

      And comedians are even worse these days! The people today don’t have a clue as to what ‘talent’ is.

        So right ‘rat. We have tried to watch some of the comedians the past few years and never get halfway through their show. Most of them are about as funny as a turd in a punchbowl.

      Nothing is the same anymore Anon. Nothing of the caliber of people like Price, “Gentleman Jim” Reeves or Patsy Cline in my opinion, to name a few of who I grew up listening to in the 50’s & 60’s. My wife and I don’t listen to this so called country music of today, just haven’t been able to get into it for the past 25-30 years.

      It ain’t what I call country!

        And yet, today’s generation eat it up like it is candy. I also wonder how many of the so called singers today have to use a Auto-Tune, to even sound half way decent.

          The arts (including music) have all taken a back seat to proper condom usage in our public (and private) education systems.

    People are amazed when they find out the voices of many, if not most, of the singers are enhanced. I discovered it a few years ago and was surprised myself! Years ago they didn’t have that technology and what you heard was the real deal whether it was from Ray Price or Ernest Tubb!

    There are no high standards or pride in ones’ performance anymore. Whether it’s singing, creating a product or providing a service. Nobody gives a rats’ gluteus maximus these days, why should they?

    SOMEONE is going to take care of the problem for them…a widely pervasive concept!

        When I started reading the article I had not noticed the name of the author at the top. When I got to the end and saw it was written by Larry Gatlin I was mildly surprised. I have never been much of a fan of his and the Gatlin Brothers (although they are good songwriters/singers) but Larry gained my respect with that article!

    Yeah but, as you know already ‘rat, that isn’t unusual among celebrities. Probably 99% of them would turn a HUGE profit for us if we could buy them for what they are worth and sell them for what they think they are worth!
