Music Deaths: Glen Campbell-- Part 1: Member of the "Wrecking Crew"


GLEN CAMPBELL, 81

Died August 8, 2017

We knew it was coming, but it is still hard to take.  This was one really talented fellow.

Born in Arkansas and became a studio musician with the world-famous "Wrecking Crew."  As studio musician played on a lot of big hits, some are included here:

Viva Las Vegas--  Elvis Presley
Mr. Tambourine Man--  Byrds
Strangers in the Night--  Frank Sinatra
You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling--  Righteous Brothers
Fun, Fun, Fun--  Beach Boys

Just these would make him a huge player in the music I loved growing up.  But there is more.
