Poll: What’s Your Favorite Glen Campbell Song?
Glen Campbell is one of the most exceptional talents in the history of popular music.
Beginning with a stellar career as a first-call session musician, Campbell appeared on a slew of hit records in the ’60s by artists as diverse as Simon and Garfunkel and Frank Sinatra. After Brian Wilson quit the Beach Boys, Campbell came in to replace him in the group’s live shows before launching his own solo career in the late ’60s.
The ’70s saw Campbell become one of the most successful singers in the world, with a long string of country hits , sold-out concerts and his own network television show. His records brought together his vocal and guitar talents with some of the world’s top songwriters, most notable Jimmy Webb, who penned several of Campbell’s most significant hits.
Campbell continued to perform and record until recently, after he announced a battle with Alzheimer’s and went on a Goodbye Tour. He turns 78 today (April 22, 2014).
