I have private meet Glen Campbell (some times) and Jimmy Webb many time.
Last time with Glen was in London late 2011 after his concert at The Royal Festival Hall.
Glen was so kind to sign my rare music sheet for "Where`s the playground Susie?", sign both by Susie (Suzy), J.W. and now Glen.
I know one of Glens son CAL, because he has play with J.W.s son.
Just here early June been first in New York, where I over phone talk short with J.W. and was out with J.W.s lovely wife Laura to eat on a famous restaurant there in town, and to a screening of The Wrecking Crew movie and said short hello to Denny Tedesco, son of legendary guitar player in this "group" Tommy T.
Then I was in Arizona, with members of family to girlsinger Linda Ronstadt family, who Suzy now days are married into.
I was lucky to bring with me to bring a rare recordings of this tune "Where`s the playground Susie?" to Suzy, tell no more.
Was there in 5 days private, and even to Fathers Days Celebrate in this family.
Also up in the mountains and in caves and to music, private and out in town.
Both Suzy husband and Suzy are much skill music people, and Suzy sings much beautifull and even play guitar and piano.
Fahrenheit was around 105 there in Arizona.
Was then in Texas, Austin, again to The Mickey Newbury Gathering.
M.N., music legend as Jimmy Webb sadly died in 2002, only 62.
Glen has as told before recorded two M.N. tunes "An American Trilogy" and one more.
M.N.s lovely mother Miss Mamie was there again, 91 and "No signs of age" as J.W. wrote in one of his songs.
I have been to this Gathering all years since 2004 in Texas, mostly in Austin.
Was because of fate also so lucky to meet a old friend there in town Greg Johnston, who own the famous club The Blue Door in Oklahoma City.
It was because my friend Barry was telling me at my arrival in Austin, that a skill singer call John Fullbright was in town, and he has been "warm up" for J.W. when he was in at The Blue Door to sing.
It was a outside "short concert" outside, downtown Austin and as last number I got J.W.s tune "If you see me getting smaller" as a gift for me this evening I guess.
Picture was taken with me, Fullbright and Johnston.
Fahrenheit was also around 105 there in Texas.
