In Memoriam – Glen Campbell

1936 – 2017



About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    ‘Galveston’ is a great song. I liked Wichita Lineman too, and I don’t usually like Country and Western. I hadn’t realised he was 81. As we get older, we tend to forget that the celebrities of our youth are much older too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    I concur, “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston” are two of his greatest, both written by the great Jimmy Webb (who also wrote “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “Up, Up, and Away”). Campbell was also a fine guitarist who briefly played with the Beach Boys.

  7. An amazing man considering he did not know how to read music. He was self taught and played guitar by ear.
