Nashville, Tenn. (May 7, 2012) – Comedy music legend Ray Stevens has released the following statement regarding the passing of his close friend, George Lindsey:
George
Lindsey was an excellent actor and comedian as well as a great
humanitarian and my good friend. He will be missed by millions and
especially by me and the other members of a little group he was a part
of that we call the ‘Nashville Breakfast Club.’ We had breakfast
together every Saturday morning for years. I remember once when it was
Goober’s turn to pick up the check, he studied it carefully for a long
time and then asked ‘Who had the jelly?'”
Lindsey, who was best known for his portrayal of “Goober on the iconic Andy Griffith Show, passed away early Sunday morning at the age of 83.
