Jerry Reed R.I.P.

Late last month, an idol of mine passed on.

From Wikipedia:

Jerry Reed Hubbard (March 20, 1937August 31, 2008), known professionally as Jerry Reed, was an American country music singer, country guitarist, session musician, songwriter, and actor who appeared in over a dozen films. As a singer, he may be best known for "Amos Moses", and "When You're Hot, You're Hot", for which he received the Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 1972 and "East Bound and Down", the theme song to the first Smokey and the Bandit movie in which he portrayed the "Snowman", Cledus Snow.

Reed was not only an amazing song-writer and guitarist, but a damn good humorist, as well.

Plus....he was on an episode of Scooby Doo...
