It was with a heavy heart that I found out about the passing of James Best. He passed away the evening of April 6, 2015 and he will be greatly missed by his fans all over the world. James Best is known to Mayberry fans as guitar player Jim Lindsey from two episodes in season one of The Andy Griffith Show but he is loved the world over as Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane from The Dukes of Hazzard. But those are just two of the hundreds of characters James Best has played during his amazing life.
I thought a nice tribute to him would be to recall an interview he did with Jim Clark from March 31, 1998 issue of The Bullet. The story was written by Jim Clark and I think it will give you a different look into James Best’s life and career.
I did an interview with Mr. Best way back in episode #38 of this podcast that you might also enjoy. It’s fairly short so drop by and give it a listen.
