News just breaking that country singer Glen Campbell had passed away age 81.

Not a country fan myself, but some of his music was passable.

R.I.P..

Lead a rough life at times, but he was a heck of a guitar player and a decent singer.

RIP.

The son of a sharecropper, Glen Travis Campbell was born in Arkansas on 22 April 1936, the seventh of 12 children.

His first guitar cost $7 and he taught himself to play.

Campbell made his name in the music business as one of the top session guitarists in Los Angeles, and helped hone producer Phil Spector's famous Wall of Sound technique.


Campbell played on hundreds of tracks including Daydream Believer by The Monkees, You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling by The Righteous Brothers, Strangers in the Night by Frank Sinatra and Viva Las Vegas by Elvis Presley.

BBC.com - Country star Glen Campbell dies at 81.

Self-taught! His voice and his guitar sound blend so well together didn't matter if it was electric or acoustic.

Parents loved the country so it was Hee-Haw on the weekend, Hank Williams in the house, and the country radio station in the truck. I liked Glen Campbell and some guy named Johnny Cash (the cussing on A Boy Named Sue tickled me) the best when in the truck. Loved Roy Clark for his guitar playing.

Heaven's jam band keeps getting bigger. RIP Glen Campbell.

Sad news.
Those apple cheeks of his and his clean-cut appearance weren't all that popular in rock circles in the 60-70s, but his music stands the test of time.

RIP

I've tried and I've failed Lord
I've won and I have lost
I've lived and I've loved,
Lord Some times, at such a cost
One thing I know
The world is good to me
A better place awaits you'll see
Some days I'm so confused, Lord
My past gets in my way
I need the ones that I love,
Lord More and more each day
One thing I know The world is good to me
A better place awaits
you'll see
Ooh A better place

I pray you're in a 'better place' sir.

peace

His version is so... Glen... Smooth...

Enjoy.

I hadn't seen that vid. Thanks for posting it to the boards.

I guess you couldn't be a card-carrying Wrecking Crew member ... without the talent to back it up.

RIP Glen.
