Fill the Guitar


Local entertainer and Country recording artist Roy Lee Scott “The Flying Cowboy” shows the guitar that is being filled with money to help defray medical expenses for Bob Avilla. Avilla is also a local entertainer who has played many benefits himself for others.

Bob Avilla has recently completed five bypass heart surgeries, and although he is on the mend, he is now dealing with a lot of medical expenses. Fellow musician, entertainer and Country recording artist Roy Lee Scott has been collecting funds to help defray Avilla’s medical expenses by “Filling the Guitar.”

Scott, or as he is better known, “The Flying Cowboy”, has already done several benefit concerts in the Oklahoma City area, and will be doing one this Friday in Altus for Avilla.

“This isn’t about me,” said Scott. “This is all about Bob. He is also a local entertainer who has played many benefits himself for others, and I thought it was his turn to get a little back,” Scott added. “This will be the first that Bob has heard of all of this, but I have been collecting for him for a while, and hope the free concert on Friday will help fill this guitar up for him.”

Scott has a plug in the hole of the guitar, and whenever someone donates for Bob, he slides it open, puts the money in it, and the let’s the donor sign the guitar. “I will present the filled guitar to Bob on Friday,” Scott said.

If you would like to help “Fill the Guitar for Bob” come out to Trader Toms Tavern Friday night. The concert will begin at 9 p.m. on the open air stage area in back at 2308 E. Broadway.

If you would like to donate, but can’t make Friday’s concert, you can contact Scott at 580-481-8858 or flybynytestudios@yahoo.com
