Glen Campbell Posted on August 8, 2017 at 22:04:26 by kiwinotthesurfer
When I was early teens I was a big Glen Campbell fan. At the height of his "Cowboy" fame he came down under and I was lucky enough to meet him. Just as nice as could be to this kid who could hardly get a word out.
A few years later I sold all my Glen Campbell records to fund my new love, The music of The Beach Boys and found out that Glen in fact had links to this new love of mine. I discovered "Guess I'm Dumb" where my two loves came together in just a wonderful song.
While I have remained faithful to the Boys over the years I have never forgotten my first love and from time to time sneaked back to revisit his wonderful music.
Glen died today. Not unexpected but sad never the less.
Glen, from the nervous stammering kid you signed his autograph book for, thank you. Job done well. Rest In Peace.
I AM going to miss you Replies:
