  • Glen Campbell

    Not many people can say they’ve turned down a permanent position in the Beach Boys, were handpicked by John Wayne to co-star in the original True Grit film, or have won four Grammys in both the country and pop categories. Glen Campbell is not many people, though. A member of The Wrecking Crew—the cream of Los Angeles session musicians in the 1960s—Campbell got his start recording with the Monkees, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Merle Haggard. He was the touring bassist for the Beach Boys in 1965 and is featured on their 1966 album Pet Sounds but didn’t join the group due to a dispute over royalties (and possibly a premonition that great things were to come in terms of his solo career). Campbell not only enjoyed a string of hits from the late ’60s until the late ’80s including “Gentle on my Mind,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “I Wanna Live,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” and “Southern Nights,” he hosted his own CBS variety television show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. Nothing beats this man’s smooth vocals and layers of steel guitars and strings on vinyl.
