Or a week. I don't think he has a month left let alone 7.

He had a little more than a week left, but that was kinda accurate. WP & R.I.P.

RIP Glen. Rhinestone Cowboy is a great song.

Wichita Lineman too.  He certainly had a few.  Southern Nights was a big hit but hokey.  Like John Denver in a way, same niche..... and Denver's 'Thank God I'm A Country Boy' hokey shlock that interfered with an otherwise talented ouvre.

A release for him at last. Having outlived a ton of his songwriters, it is sad loss for many who found country more accessible through him. Good rest, sir and thanks for your contribution.

 

RIP.

Maybe I'm just imagining things but I could have sworn he did a song about amphetamines once

Alas, Glen never had a UK No 1 hit, so does not further the Scavenger Hunt deadpool.

I DON'T WANT TO GIVE MY AGE AWAY, but as a child I remember singing over and over one of Glen Campbells greatest hits, Rhinestone Cowboy. For some reason I was obsessed with  the song, and Campbell for ages! I therefore feel his loss in a weirdly personal way, for someone who never met him.He was quite simply, to me at least,  a titan of music. RIP  great man .

I shouldn't worry about it.  We still do.

Well, Country is not the kind of Music I like, but nevertheless R.I.P. for my 9th hit.:grave:

Seeing as it was Campbell who was my 20th DDP name that I inserted when I gave John Wetton the ill-advised boot, there is ever-so-slight vindication for Cancel My Appointments.

I wonder if he is having a drink with Peter Falk up in the sky.They both have a commonality I seem to recall.

RIP to a country legend.  That music video was very sad as well.  At least he isn't suffering anymore.
