Good man.  He was a friend of my dads and I actually visited him at his house in Charleston when he was governor.

From Fox Sports Radio 92.7 Camden's Facebook page:

Coach Jimmy "Red" Parker, 84, former coach at Bearden, Fordyce and multiple other college and high schools, passed away at 6:30 am this morning. He was 84 years old.

Parker, who just resigned from coaching at Haskell Harmony Grove in Benton, had been sick and his death was not unexpected, the superintendent at Harmony Grove was quoted as saying on Arkansas Online.

Parker's final game took place in the same spot where it all began- Fordyce. The Cardinals were defeated by Fordyce in the first round of the playoffs, and Parker, who had already announced his resignation, was honored with a key to the city and had several former players wish him well.

Sad, sad day for the music industry and those of my generation, although his music transcended generations.

My first concert to attend was an Eagles concert in Shreveport in 1976, just a couple of months before the release of Hotel California.  Joe Walsh was still a newbie with the band.  In 1994, I saw the group during the heck Freezes Over tour at the Pyramid in Memphis.  Each of their subsequent trips to Little Rock, I've had the pleasure to see them.  Really glad I went to see them last year at Verizon, little did I know it would be my last opportunity.

His first solo album, No Fun Aloud, got a lot of spins on my turntable.

Really going to miss the Eagles.  To me Frey and Henley defined the group (also love Walsh), there can be no replacements.

The world has lost a poet.  Desperados Waiting For a Train and The Randall Knife are two of my favorite songs.  Texas Cookin' is one of my favorite albums.


Guy Charles Clark
November 6, 1941 – May 17, 2016

Grammy-winner, Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame member, Academy of Country Music Poet’s Award honoree, and fearless raconteur Guy Charles Clark (death details here)

He was born in the dusty west Texas town of Monahans on November 6, 1941. The family lived at his grandmother’s 13-room shotgun hotel; home to bomber pilots, drifters, oilmen and a wildcatter named Jack Prigg, the subject of Clark’s famous song “Desperados Waiting For A Train.” When Guy’s father returned from WWII and graduated from law school, the Clarks moved to the Gulf coast town of Rockport, Texas. Guy came of age in the pretty little beach town. As captain and center, Guy led the football team. He played guard in basketball, ran the 100-yard dash and threw discus in track and field. He won science fairs, joined the Explorer’s club, presided over the junior class as president, acted in school plays, excelled on the debate team, illustrated the yearbook, and fell in love with Mexican folk songs and the Flamenco guitar.

After a couple of false starts at university, Guy joined the Peace Corps in 1963. He trained in Rio Abajo, Puerto Rico, practicing water survival, rock climbing and trekking, followed by a month of book learning at the University of Minnesota. After turning down an assignment in Punjab, India, Guy moved to Houston, where he opened a guitar repair shop with his friend Minor Wilson. He played guitar and sang folk songs at the Houston Folklore Society, Sand Mountain coffee shop and the Jester Lounge, where he began life long friendships with fellow struggling songwriters and musicians Mickey Newbury, Townes Van Zandt, Jerry Jeff Walker, Kay Oslin, Frank Davis, Gary White and Crow Johnson. He married his first wife, folksinger Susan Spaw, and they had a son Travis in 1966.

In 1969, after splitting with Susan, Guy moved to San Francisco and again joined Minor Wilson in a guitar repair shop. Within a year, he moved back to Houston, met and fell in love with a beautiful dark haired painter named Susanna Talley. Susanna moved from Oklahoma City to Houston to be with Guy and after a few months, she sold a painting to fund the couple’s move to Los Angeles. Guy landed a job building Dobros at the Dopyera Brothers Original Musical Instruments Company. He played with a bluegrass band on the weekends and pitched his songs to publishing companies in between.

He signed a publishing deal with Sunbury Dunbar and moved to Nashville in the fall of 1971. He and Susanna crashed on songwriter Mickey Newbury’s houseboat for a few weeks and then moved into a small rental house at 1307 Chapel Avenue in East Nashville. Guy and Susanna returned to Newbury’s houseboat on January 14, 1972 along with Mickey and Susan Newbury and Townes Van Zandt as best man; the five friends sailed up the Cumberland River to the Sumner County Courthouse where Guy Clark and Susanna Talley married.

In that first year in East Nashville Susanna and Townes wrote “Heavenly Houseboat Blues,” while Guy turned out “Desperados Waiting for a Train,” “L.A. Freeway,” and “That Old Time Feeling.” By the time Guy released Old No. 1, his debut critically acclaimed album for RCA Records in 1975, he had written several soon-to-be classic songs including “She Ain’t Going Nowhere,” “Let Him Roll,” “Rita Ballou,” and “Texas 1947.”

He jumped from RCA to Warner Brothers in 1978, scoring a number one song with Ricky Skaggs’s take on “Heartbroke” in 1982 and breaking into the Billboard country chart with “Homegrown Tomatoes” in 1983. Clark hit his stride when he signed with Sugar Hill Records in 1989, and then released a string of significant folk and Americana albums with Sugar Hill, Asylum Records and Dualtone Music Group during the next two-and-a-half decades: Old Friends, Boats to Build, Dublin Blues, Keepers, Cold Dog Soup, The Dark, Workbench Songs, Somedays the Song Writes You and his final 2013 Grammy-winning Best Folk Album, My Favorite Picture of You.

For more than forty years, the Clark home was a gathering place for songwriters, folk singers, artists and misfits; many who sat at the feet of the master songwriter in his element, willing Guy’s essence into their own pens. Throughout his long and extraordinary career, Guy Clark blazed a trail for original and groundbreaking artists and troubadours including his good friends Rodney Crowell, Jim McGuire, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Joe Ely, Lyle Lovett, Verlon Thompson, Shawn Camp, and Vince Gill.

His beloved Susanna died from complications of lung cancer in 2012. Due to ongoing health problems, Guy stopped touring and recording shortly thereafter. He is survived by his son Travis and daughter-in-law Krista McMurtry Clark; grandchildren Dylan and Ellie Clark; sisters Caroline Clark Dugan and Jan Clark; manager and friend Keith Case; caretaker and sweetheart Joy Brogdon; nieces, nephews and many, many dear friends, colleagues and fans.

I remember Barney Miller when Barney called for "Harris, Yemana, Fish".

Only Barney (Hal Linden) is still with us after the passing of Ron Glass (Harris).

A very popular jockey at Oaklawn, and later on the national scene. He was the rider of the horse that handed Zenyatta her only career loss. RIP.

I remembered her on the Hollywood Squares a lot.  She married nine times.  One of the first to take the fact she was a celebrity and run with it.

Her sister was Eva, of Green Acres fame.

Say what you will about George Michael, he put out some of the best music of the '80s.  For about three years he was hotter than either Michael Jackson or Madonna.  Then came the infamous BevHills restroom incident.  He was just never the same again.
