    Glen Campbell...81

    A true gentleman.

    Excellent songwriter and guitarist...whom I learned so much from. He made many, many more studio cuts for so many people it's hard to list them all. My fav? The Beach Boys, believe it or not.

    I'll miss his hooks and genial personality. Nicest guy ya'll'd ever want to meet. I was graced to have spent some q-time...sharing guitars...so very long ago.

    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    I don't think he was a songwriter? I mean his hits were not written by him?

    IIRC, he composed a number of songs.

    Which is not to say that the ones he performed, were always his own. But I believe that's how he got into the music biz, big-time...composing lyrics...

    I absolutely loved his television show. He showed an astonishing skill on a number of different instruments and always had on people who made it big like Mason Williams, who actually debuted on the Smothers Brothers Show.

    A Soldier's Stories - rambling and musing about military life.

    I proudly voted for President Trump!

    Yeah, I was sorry to hear that he passed away. He was sort of ubiquitous.

    Paranoia -
    a tendency on the part of an individual or group toward excessive or irrational suspiciousness and distrustfulness of others

    Stupidity and ignorance are not limited to only one political party or particular way of thinking.


    I've never met an anti-Semite who thought they were anti-Semitic. Remember that the Nazis didn't see themselves as bad people. If don't like Jews or think Hitler was misunderstood, you are an idiot and can go screw yourself.

    He was a unique one of a kind. Was sad to see his farewell show when getting into Alzheimers, he would forget almost everything but his songs , but still kept a prompter when performing.

    I have a CD in my car that is Glen Campbell's best plus John Denver's best....both artists bring back many of the pleasant memories of a younger, better time....
