    I recall Glen and George Benson doing an onstage performance in the 80's, I think it was the Grammys. Glen apparently held back during rehearsal and sound check, because Benson was clearly surprised at the licks Glen ripped off. Funny as hell, great stuff that guy.

    I hate that he's gone, thankful he no longer is suffering, and grateful to have grown-up watching such a magnificent talent. RIP Glen

    I know fellow AK'er Condersat already posted this song, but I really love this version on Austin City Limits.

    a Member of the wrecking crew, and a respectable artist in his own right.

    I have had memorial services for Michael Jackson, Glenn Frye, and Johnny Cash. These involve playing as much of their library as I have. Glen Campbell will also have that rite in this house. If you get the chance, watch the documentary, "I'll Be Me." It WILL move you.

    Maybe some just don't know, but Glen put out his last studio album about two month ago. It's a really good record, maybe go pick one up.





    And if you want to cry....

    As a young man I remember the enjoyment me and my Dad got from watching the 1969 classic western "True Grit"
    ... stared John Wayne as Roster Cogburn & Glen Campbell as La Boeuf. Glen was a man of many talents.

    One of the few movies we as a whole family went to the theater to see. It was a big event that interested everyone.

    Fill your hand you son of a bitch

    Rhinestone Cowboy, one of my favorites. Over time I have randomly emailed my friends the lyrics of that song. Pure Americana.
    Gonna do it now

    I think that anyone who truly loves music, and appreciates well-written songs, regardless of genre ... has to love Glen. I grew up listening to him and not once did I ever think of him as being a country singer ... he was and is one of America's greatest songwriter/singers.

    Two weeks ago My wife and I rented a lake house and one night we had two couples over for dinner, wine, and a sunset on the beach. Well the sunset was rained out.

    We drank a lot of wine that night inside the house. I started a game by playing YouTube files of 60's and 70's hits from my phone to my blue tooth speaker. Guess the song, artist, label, year, what or who it reminds you of, etc. Great fun!!!

    I played Wichita Lineman. It was only song that we all listened to quietly, each person lip syncing parts, reflecting.
