Re: Glen Campbell's Mosrite Celebrity I

This was on Bill Mack's Facebook page. This Mosrite seems to show up from time to time, indicating that Glen probably transitioned to it from the Epiphone, for a hollow body. This is the best picture of the guitar (not Glen) where we see that he had his initials on the 12th fret. Another indication ...

Re: 50 Year True Grit Celebration in Ridgway Colorado this October!

Randy, really they contacted me through the Forums! My love for Colorado and the San Juans is just a coincidental common thread. They were not looking in Debby's direction at the time (last year) and I suggested that she probably would be the most likely to say yes to an invite. I really did no leg ...

The Hitching Post in Albuquerque, NM Where Glen Campbell Played

I t is unusual if you read an article about Glen's time in Albuquerque without The Hitching Post being mentioned. Some say it was Glen's home base, he was seen there so often. Early on, it was with Dick Bills, his uncle, and the Sandia Mountain Boys and in 1958 with Glen's own band, the Western Wra...
