Glen Campbell was a singer and guitarist who made his greatest artistic contribution as the principal interpreter of songs by Jimmy Webb, notably Wichita Lineman, By the Time I Get to Phoenix and Galveston, all recorded in the late 1960s. The clarity of Campbell’s enunciation and the sweetness of his tenor voice brought out the poetry and emotion of the compositions. He described his style at this time as “crock” – a blend of country and rock. His greatest success came in the following decade with the million-selling singles, Rhinestone Cowboy and Southern Nights. It was at the age of four that Campbell was given his first guitar. It was a five-dollar instrument bought from a Sears Roebuck mail order catalogue. With the aid of records by the jazz guitarists, he quickly became a skilled player. He sadly passed away on 8 August 2017 at the age of 81.
