Times gone by: Glen Campbell



Glen Travis Campbell

April 22, 1936 – August 8, 2017


Nothing makes me feel my advancing years quite as poignantly as
losing the musicians who’ve scored my life.



  1. Ugh, I’m never sure whether to “Like” posts like this because I don’t “like” it when someone passes. But I feel like the “Like” is a way of recognizing the passing of someone great. Excellent choice of song, too. Reminds me so much of my youth.

  2. I know what you mean about the passing of celebrities. I notice the same phenomenon when I read the Parade Magazine insert that comes with the Sunday paper. Its first feature has always been “Walter Scott’s Personality Parade” and it now often fails to list anyone I recognize. It’s an eerie feeling. I wonder how many young people are wondering who Glen Campbell was?

    • It’s just another little piece of our lives falling by the wayside. When pieces enough have fallen …

      Kids’ music today is so unlike Campbell’s songs, most probably wouldn’t like them even if they knew who he was. Which sounds a lot like what my parents said when rock and roll came around.
