Overall, I thought it was a well written book and although I not someone who has faith in God, I could appreciate Kim's strong belief and there is...

Re: Glen Campbell's Mosrite Celebrity I

Yes, that just seemed like fate playing a hand there. Glen/Jimmy/Ovation a great combination. It's interesting to spot how many artists were using Ovations, especially through the 70s-80s. They must surely have been influenced by Glen's example and also the unique sound they created. I can always he...

Re: Mac Davis (78) passed away

Hi Cowpoke, are you saying it wasn't Van Halen playing that riff?, as I read it on the news items and assumed it to be true, although I didn't fact check it. Steve Lukather, is a big Glen fan and I remember watching the youtube video of them talking together. I liked the way he pointed out Glen's ha...

Glad you enjoyed the book Cowpoke. I have just received my copy and I am two chapters in. I will post my thoughts when I have read it all. So far though, I think Kim has done a good job.

Re: Glen Campbell's Mosrite Celebrity I

Fantastic pics jay, I hadn't seen a couple of these shots. Wouldn't it be great to have a book of pictures which each chapter dedicated to each guitar Glen played, including the album covers. It would need an expert like yourself to edit it etc. That would be a great read.

Re: Mac Davis (78) passed away

jay, I am with you and KMFrye54, I think the "beat it" intro is iconic and I respect the ability these guys show on the fretboard, as I did Glen. However I much prefer those players who can produce a melody within the playing which is readily identifiable. I.E. John Williams The Deer hunter, Cavatin...

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.
