Highlight for me was Jimmy Webb —a ridiculously talented and legendary songwriter. He played piano with no accompaniment and performed Amazing Grace and Wichita Lineman.
There was a lot of love — Glen’s wife Kim is a warrior… and a strong Christian woman. In fact — a LOT of the folks in that place were strong Christians
Although I was in a public location when a friend texted news that eighty-one-year old Glen Campbell had passed away, I still reacted audibly. The contemporary music icon had been ill for a number of years, of course — in 2011, it was announced he was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease — so his passing wasn’t a complete surprise. Still, the announcement took me aback — I’ve been a fan for years.
Are there people from your peer group, or any of your idols, who you feel like maybe aren’t receiving the sort of credit they should be while they’re still living?
That’s quite a difficult question to answer. I mean, someone like Glen Campbell was always someone that was so consistent that you didn’t realize the body of work that he’d done. Same with Johnny Cash. When Johnny Cash passed, it was someone who had gone through so much, and they make films about them, and you discover just how great they were. It’s the longevity that they have, and the consistency that they have, and the originality that they maintain.
