    Country Music Legend Glen Campbell Dies at 81

    It's been a bad stretch for celebrity deaths.


    Rest in peace, Glen.

    Goodbye and God bless, Glen. From "Wichita Lineman" to "Southern Nights", so much of your music lay gentle on my mind. :)

    Once upon a time, there was an age when classy, well-groomed, well-dressed men sang in proper English. RIP Glen.:(

    Disagree. Wichita Lineman written by Jimmy Webb was a great song and Glen's version was amazing. Many people don't know that Glen was a sought after studio guitarist that played on many hits recorded in LA in the 60's by the legendary Wrecking Crew - studio musicians that also included Leon Russell. When Brian Wilson stopped touring with the Beach Boys, Glen took his place on the tours. When he started making his own records,he showed that he had a smooth voice to go along with his guitar talents. His warm personality landed him a prime time musical variety show. He starred opposite John Wayne in the original movie True Grit and performed the theme song from that film. This was a hugely talented musician who was loved by the many other musicians and writers he worked with. Jimmy Webb was a lifelong friend and wrote an amazing tribute to him on Facebook today,

    One of the last of the REAL COUNTRY MUSIC people, the screaming, yelling and face contortions these new ones do today isn't even close to "real country"

    RIP Glen

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]The local press humorously riffed Glen's song during their holdout.

    It was a few years before Jackson Browne's hit.
