Re: RIP Andy Griffith

Grew up hearing that theme song constantly. My parents LOVED that show.

Matlock was a classic too.

Another legend gone.

Re: RIP Andy Griffith

Most don't know but he got his start in the Play "Lost Colony" which is still running today in Nags Head. He loved the area so much he made it his home.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_Colony_(play)

From a different link.

MANTEO, N.C. (AP) -- A sword used by Andy Griffith during his days as a young stage actor in "The Lost Colony" is back in the hands of the play's production designer. Griffith presented the sword to Tony Award winner William Ivey Long on Thursday. Long said he initially believed that a September fire that destroyed most of the play's costumes had also claimed the sword. But Griffith called him the day after the fire and said he had the sword. Griffith used the sword for five years beginning in 1949, when he started in the role as Sir Walter Raleigh. The Mount Airy native later went on to roles in film, on Broadway and then his namesake television show. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

Re: RIP Andy Griffith

He was old as hell. A good guy though from everything i've seen. R.I.P.

I'm only 27 but i'm sure it makes a lot of people feel old that all the people from these TV shows are all dead.

I sort of know what it's like. I was watching old WWF tapes a few weeks back and in one of the main events, it was a tag team match and all 4 wrestlers had passed away, and this was a match from the 1990's!
