Farewell, Glen Campbell

Image result for glen campbell Glen Campbell was not just an important part of the Beach Boys story; he was a major artist in his own right. His passing yesterday marks the end of a long goodbye, and ends a glittering career including over 70 albums, selling over 45 million records.

Brian Wilson fans will know him best as the singer of the brilliant Guess I’m Dumb as well as Brian’s temporary replacement in the touring Beach Boys. But he was a talented musician and member of the wrecking crew, a great singer and a showman who hosted his own television show. Musically, he may be best remembered as the interpreter of Jimmy Webb’s song, especially Wichita Lineman, often regarded as the perfect song, on which he also played guitar.

So 2017 sees the end of another era, as we say goodbye to Glen Campbell and cherish all the great musical memories he has made. Farewell, Glen Campbell
