When you’re hot, you’re hot

and when you’re not, you’re not.

(this diary is dedicated to Miss Devore)

Singer-turned-actor Jerry Reed, known as “The Guitar Man” of country music, has died aged 71.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Reed released more than 40 albums over a long career that started when he was just 18.

After scoring US hits like Amos Moses and When You’re Hot, he broke into cinema in the 1970s, appearing in all three Smokey and the Bandit movies.

The star, who had quadruple bypass surgery in 1999, died on Monday of complications arising from emphysema.
