Somehow I missed this when it was published... but it's heartwarming to read all these comments by all these great artists.

Glen Campbell remains a mysterious figure in pop music, and the mystery only deepens when you pause to consider how well you know his recordings. Every pop, country, folk, soul and rock fan can hum his famous late-’60s records, most of them written by pop genius Jimmy Webb.
In other words, Campbell was a pop artist of a very pure kind. There’s no Glen Campbell aesthetic other than the aesthetic of being very good at what he did.
Quotes from a well-written in memoriam...

Interesting and well written article on how a singer from the south made a lasting impression on a boy from the north.

“Sadly Fragrant Flowers”: Reflections on Glen Campbell
August 11th, 2017 by Andrew

Nancy Sinatra remembers Glen Campbell on her official website with rare videos, photos, memories of her recordings with Glen as session musician, Goodtime Hour appearances and more!

https://nancysinatra.com/blog/2017/08/s ... -campbell/

This information particularly caught our attention!
In 1966, Glen made history with Nancy on her How Does That Grab You? LP. He played the psychedelic electric guitar solo on Nancy & Lee’s initial duet, “Sand,” the first record to incorporate a backwards guitar effect.
You can listen to "Sand" on Nancy's website or here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGfD2j9M1dA

Musicians and others share their thoughts on the loss of Glen Campbell

How did we miss this powerhouse of tributes to the Great Glen Campbell on Goldmine?
Check out two of Goldmine's tribute posts below as well as many others on the Goldmine site. Don't miss the tremendous full-size black and white photo of guitar masters Glen Campbell, Chet Atkins and Steve Wariner.
I was 5 years old when I learned all the words to ‘By the Time I Get to Pheonix.’ Now I am 55 and get senior discounts on coffee. Glen’s voice cuts through the years to the very day I learned it! I learned his every inflection. Who had more pure talent than Glen Campbell? Nobody.” – Max T. Barnes, award-winning songwriter
Sorry to hear about my good friend Glen. The loss is too big to put into words. He was an incredible voice, incredible musician, incredible friend, movie star and recording artist. We had so much fun together, and sort of grew up together in our music and our careers. There were so many memories that only he and I shared. Glen and I were brothers in every sense of the word. When I hear or see his name, I see the Glen I’ve always known. There will never, ever be another Glen Campbell. – Roy Clark

Jimmy Webb remembers and honors Glen Campbell in this Syracuse.com interview with Warren Linhart, aptly describing the impact Glen had on American popular music.

The interview took place prior to Jimmy's show last night at The Palace Theatre in Syracuse: "Jimmy Webb: The Glen Campbell Years - a multi-media tribute to Glen Campbell".

Great interview!

Don't recall seeing this one so forgive me if it's been up before, but a nice reflection from a member of the S.D. symphony orchestra.
