    Anytime I hear Phoenix I can't get it outta my head for at least a day, usually two. There was something very haunting and sparkly about that guy's music, and that was way before Rhinestone Cowboy. I can't put my finger on why, but the Glenster was always around whence I was a little tyke. My family went camping a lot at state camp grounds, and my mom always had an AM radio and up in the mountains we were lucky to get even 1 radio station, but back in the day they played a lot of Glen Campbell. I was already saddened to hear of his disease several years ago - we all knew he was going to go, and so he was trying to finish one final album, and well, that's that.

    Thanks a ton for the good memories Glen. It was all good. :yesway:

    This is a great interview. Funny, when he talks about where they got the ticket from the camera I know that area well. Hometown boys having fun. Huge talent on both sides and good people struggling with demons. In the end they win because they are or were good people.
    Thanks for sharing this.

    I don't know much about glen, admittedly it isn't my usual style of music. However, I do know that, for a brief time at least he was a member of one of my favorite groups of all time, The Kingston Trio, Glen played 12 string for them for a while in the 60's I believe.

    I thought , "cool ,Alice talking about his original lead guitarist , the late, great Glen Buxton"

    Oh well, Glen Campbell is great too.

    I'm very disappointed. I thought this was going to be the Brady Bunch maid Alice talking about Glenn Danzig.

    Wichita Lineman is possibly one of the best laid out songs ever to be recorded. "And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time:" Jimmy Webb was one of the real genius wordsmiths in Nashville for years. I was just listening to Glen Campbell while working in the lab this morning.

    So many versions of this song, and so many people have done it as tribute, it still is good!
