R.I.P. The Snowman

Jerry Reed - Guitar Man

The Guitar Man…Jerry Reed.

I was wondering why a post about Jerry Reed I put up a couple of months back was suddenly getting a bunch of views. I’d taken my eye off the ball with too much transfer window watching and hadn’t seen that the great Jerry Reed died on Monday, aged 71.

The post was basically about how way back I just used to know Reed as Cledus “Snowman” Snow in one of my favourite films of all time “Smokey And The Bandit“, oh and as Bama McCall in “Gator” and didn’t know he was “The Guitar Man”.

Good night Snowman, say hi to Fred for me…

The boys are thirsty in Atlanta and there’s beer in Texarkana so I’m…

East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’,
We gonna do what they say can’t be done.
We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I’m east bound, just watch ol’ “Bandit” run.
