    RIP George Jones

    I know I post up Buckethead at times but I also enjoy old Country. George Jones, considered the finest voice in Country, died a few days ago. Don't know how this is going to go over on this forum but what the heck:

    Pretty sad to hear this. Always enjoyed the old classic country singers, versus the current crop of twang crap songs. Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker, Merle Haggard, those were the classics. Similar to trying to compare classic rock to whatever the hell they call this s**t on the radio now. Rap, really?
