Say good-bye to Glen Campbell.
A string of hits in the mid-late sixties and his own television show made him famous.
He was the seventh son of a seventh son.
He could not read music, but could play any part if he heard it first.
He did backup vocals/guitar for the Rolling Stones and other bands.
He released an album in the mid seventies containing the hits “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Sunflower”.
When X was a wee lad travelling ‘tween Texas and North Dakota in the sixties, they played a wide variety of musicians, including Glen Campbell, Andy Williams, Petula Clark, Boots Randolph, Ray Coniff, the Jesus Christ Superstar album…all these on 8-track.
Folks would not let us play The Who, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Uriah Heep, Yes Fragile…”Very well” X would tell them “continue to wallow in ignorance.”
