Re: Glen Campbell's Gibson B25-12N Twelve String

Hey 12string, It's great to hear from a fan of such long standing. Good on you for keeping up with the playing as well. How on earth did you find that Gibson guitar after all this time and does it feel nice to play on. I would think those tunes would be quite a challenge to learn especially as you h...

Re: Your Stories and Memories about Glen

sailor41, You must treasure those memories of seeing Glen in his prime when he was a big star at his peak. I saw Glen for the first time in the 1980s and every time he came to the UK. He never did a bad show.

Re: Goodbye Tour outfits

Welcome SenatorV, You might be interested to know Manuel Cuevas, designed the white suit featured on Glen's Rhinestone Cowboy album 1975. He is included in the film "I'll be me" discussing the suit and I could see he had great pride in making these suits for Glen and others as well.

Re: DEDICATED TO GLEN WHO STOLE MY HEART! (a Heartfelt poem)

What a wonderful tribute debstewart1956, you captured Glen's life so well and your decades of devotion shone through. I hope you have recovered from the shock, it has been hard for all of us dedicated fans. I found it hard seeing the printed confirmation and also when announcers referred to the LATE...
