That is sad. I've edited the thread title.
Let's all singalong
Lyrics are ace:
Love his music...
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"
streaming this on Apple music now
His voice is all there still.
I was a great fan.
'Wichita Lineman' especially.
Mrs A loves that too. It was her listening to that track that introduced me to his music.
Shit news. A dick but he recorded some fantastic stuff.
Not heard the latest but Meet Glen Campbell was an excellent recent record
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.
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
The Wrecking Crew's prodigal son. Played on 100s of great fucking records. R.I.P.
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.
Very sad but perhaps a blessing in the circumstances.
"And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time"
RIP Glen x
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 ....
And if I ever knew he'd been in True Grit I'd forgotten
He was the hip young gunslinger of his day in terms of the go to session guitarists in L.A.
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...
An Evening with Glen Campbell on now on BBC4. What a magnificent writer and singer he was.
