Tim Pierce tribute to Glen

I found this while looking at some guitar videos on Youtube. Tim is playing a signed Ovation guitar and in fact worked with Glen in the studio on his last albums.

Happy birthday Glen

Just wanted to remember Glen on his birthday. I hope all his family, friends and fans raise a drink to his memory and even a piece of cake would be nice.
Your legacy lives on, rest in peace Glen.

Re: Director Marty Pasetta on working on "The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour"

That is a great clip jay, thanks for posting. It amazes me that budgets were so tight on a show which was so prime time. I guess they had to set limits, but even still I would have expected a bit of flexibility to do the best job for their product production.

Re: Dennis Lambert & Larry Weiss Talk About Rhinestone Cowboy

Well said cowpoke. I am listening to Re-united today and it is a go to album when I want to just listen to a good solid set of songs. I guess it is harder to find great songs because of the way the industry has changed. The Jimmy Webb's of the world are not able to produce songs for other artists li...

Rest in peace Kenny Rogers

I have just heard the sad news that Kenny Rogers has passed away at the age of 81. I saw Kenny with Glen and Tammy Wynette when they did a joint tour. I have always loved Kenny's music and I know many of you will know that he took the photo for the front of Glen's Southern Nights album. May he rest ...

Re: Announcing Glen Campbell's Newest DVD/CD Releases

Hey Cowpoke, I think you're on the right track here. :lol:, which is more than can be said for the album covers. I don't know these albums, but that is a good find. Again I take my hat off to you.

Re: Dennis Lambert & Larry Weiss Talk About Rhinestone Cowboy

Not sure I would agree you there Cowpoke. I thought "Light years" and "still within the sound of my voice" were pretty good. Other albums like "Old home town" and "letter to home" has a number of good tracks but some weak one also. I guess it depends on the taste of the listener. They obviously didn...

Re: Announcing Glen Campbell's Newest DVD/CD Releases

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysnRzw11Xgs Hi Cowpoke,One that comes to mind is Collin Raye's album. (This isn't officially called Wichita Lineman but it refers to the lyric of the song). The mistake is confusing the word "line" for rail lines instead of telephone lines. I am reminded of some old ...

Re: Dennis Lambert & Larry Weiss Talk About Rhinestone Cowboy

Nicely done Cowpoke, I never realised that. I agree, I really loved that song too, it was a real standout on the album. I also loved I'm gonna love you. I thought It was a nice touch doing an instrumental version of the song at the end. It was a shame the album didn't make as big an impact as Glen h...

Re: New book: The Wichita Lineman

Hi Cowpoke, I went back to the book and if you go to page 100 and read from there to page 111 that covers the story fairly well, regarding how Jimmy and Glen discussed how the two of them interacted at the time the song was in the process of being recorded and the organ was shipped to Capitol record...
