Yeah, the guy was awesome. I think he's self-taught on the guitar, too.

Way back before Glen was famous, he was an in-demand studio guitar player. Very talented.

Thanks, phi-pho.

Yeah. And, someone told me way back that he was part of the Beach Boys. Every time I mentioned that I was bert stared. But it's true!


In 1960, Campbell moved to Los Angeles to become a session musician.[8] Around that time he was part of the group the Champs, famous for their instrumental "Tequila". Soon Campbell was in great demand as a session musician. He was part of a group of the studio musicians that became known as "the Wrecking Crew".[9] During this period he played on recordings by Bobby Darin, Rick Nelson, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, The Monkees, Nancy Sinatra, Merle Haggard, Jan and Dean[8], Elvis Presley[10], Frank Sinatra and Phil Spector.[9]
From December 1964 to early March 1965, Campbell was a touring member of the Beach Boys, filling in for Brian Wilson.[11] He also played guitar on the group's Pet Sounds album, among other recordings. On tour, he played bass guitar and sang falsetto harmonies.

Touring member, I guess an argument could be made either way on that one.

Exactly, but we all listened to it while trapped in a moving car didn't we? LOL I don't own, nor do I seek out much of what I post here, but it none the less plays a large roll in many of my memories.

My mother always reminds me that when I took guitar lessons at age 10, that it was because I wanted to play like Glen Campbell, lol. LOL, I only recall my teacher hand-writing slash marks with chords above them, for The Beatles and Otis Redding (srs) to keep my interest...while I was having to learn $hit like The Mexican Waltz, etc... :D (true!). Honestly, I don't recall idolizing him, but mothers....whaddayagonnado?

And yes, I'm glad someone knew this (I realize that a few more might, but...), because it's a largely unknown fact, by most. Campbell was a consummate professional and much sought after studio session player for others.

If your folks were listening to Glenn, they were most certainly also listening to...

Two of the three are familiar, with the last being more famously sung/done by Dionne Warwick, here in the U.S.. But yes, Sergio's influence was definitely worldwide.

Ye mi Lay is definitely not well known, but a good one and a nice view of "the girls" singing. Who, BTW, didn't know a lick of portugues.

the shorter one eventually married Shorty Rogers, the jazz trumpeter.

Read that Glenn Campbell is suffering from Alzheimer, because of this he is doing a "farewell" concert this year. Sad, but his legacy lives on in spite.

My apologies...
I went looking for Glen Campbell doing 'Scarborough Fair' on youtube but it doesnt seem to exist.

A very interesting (and obviously 'countrified') arrangement...
Fresh and unique.
:D
