Lenny Kravitz:
Besides being an amazing solo artist, Glen Campbell was also a genius studio musician - as part of the Wrecking Crew - playing on recordings from The Beach Boys to Frank Sinatra. He was pure talent, heart, and courage. Rest In Peace brother. You brought us a lot of joy.

Thanks Dee for that video of Alice Cooper. And Mike thanks for those links. Finally they are broadcasting a terrific radio documentary on Glen from 2005 again, presented by Mike Mills of REM. I have all episodes except for episode 2. If someone can record it, that would be great (I am leaving on vacation this weekend).

Some radio shows have aired a tribute to Glen this morning, but will repeat it at 4:20PM CT. One is KSCS 96.3, played one and KLUV as well--for the Dallas area people and hopefully some of you can also look this up as they will probably do it in your town as well. "The Light Will Always Be Shining On Him." The Rhinestone Cowboy will always be in our hearts forever. Sympathies to all the Campbell's. God Bless You All, and to Glen who gave us everything and more!

It's gratifying to see a great deal of good will to the news of Glen's passing and a recognition of Glen's importance to the music world.
