You all surely heard the sad news, Glen Campbell has died. Glen Campbell, the indelible voice behind 21 Top 40 hits including "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Wichita Lineman" and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," died Tuesday. He was 81. During a career that spanned six decades, Campbell sold over 45 million records. In 1968, one of his biggest years, he outsold the Beatles.
I feel very sad about that, and that had happened to me only to a few musicians before. I thought about this today morning and asked myself why it comes that close to my heart. Maybe it is because i realized that this man probably is the guitar player i have heard the most in my life. Not because he was my number one role model as a guitar player but he had played on so much songs we all know and a lot, really a lot are favourite songs of me. This thoughts come to my mind and i think i was never before that conscious about that. I searched the web this morning, looked pictures, read stories about his career, his life and his disease. I have a nostalgic feeling and i think it is because his music touched my life the whole time. Often unconscious, sometimes conscious. I hope and wish that he is now at a better place.
Thank you, Glen Campbell.
