    Mind you, he signed off in style: "In April 2017, Campbell's final album, Adiós, was announced, featuring twelve songs from his final 2012-13 sessions. The album was released on June 9, 2017"

    Mrs A loves that too. It was her listening to that track that introduced me to his music.

    Only just saw this in the news.

    I was known to walk the streets of Wolverhampton in the early hours singing this.

    I think he did O.K. R.I.P.

    Badgers Mr Big Shrimp!

    Sad news but I doubt he had much quality of life left.

    Wichita Lineman probably his best work but Rhinestone Cowboy was the first song I learned the lyrics to by heart. Still do :D

    Sprocket. Baroudeur...

    Really prolific session musician before he broke through.
    His partnership with Jimmy Webb worked well for both of them.
    It was because of Campbell I bought my first bowl back Ovation.
    RIP Glen Campbell, I always thought you would be like La Boeuf in real life.

    Reading Glenn's Guardian obituary yesterday (it's very good) was quite an eyeopener for me (I only knew his really well known songs :( ) because of all the different musicians he'd worked with ....

    Glen Campbell is one of those musicians who is just home, just childhood and safety for me. RIP Cowboy.

    One of his best songs. As for his acting in it, he probably thought it was best forgotten, given what he says at this show...
