  1. I just watched the Glen Campbell farewell tour documentary, “I’ll be Me” on CNN last night. What a phenomenal musician, singer and songwriter he was. I was never into that adult contemporary country pop thing he did, but his talent could not be denied.

    • I’ve always thought he was kind of underrated- a lot of people i think wrote him off as cornball due to his tv show in the late 60’s and didn’t recognize what a great musician he was.

    • Yep. He did have a cornball persona. He hammed it up too, but you see in the documentary that he was really like that. Wichita Lineman is a great song, though. I’ve always like that one–and the guy could play guitar!
