Glen Campbell Sings Tomorrow Never Comes

Mon Jan 21, 2013 3:38 am

Glen is 76Years Old This Year comin to the age of 77 On April 22nd . He was a session player for Elvis on his movie Viva Las Vegas when he played lead guitar on the title track in '63 .
A talented guitarist by the age of 16, Campbell dropped out of high school and headed out West, where he played with bands in Wyoming's bars and roadhouses.
In 1952, he joined the Sandia Mountain Boys (a band founded by his uncle, Dick Bills) and soon became a popular performer on local television and radio shows in New Mexico.
At the age of 22, Campbell formed his own band: Glen Campbell and The Western Wranglers.

Glen Campbell's last album Ghost On The Canvas is a classic, possibly the best one he has ever done. I like it better than any Elvis album from the 70's except Elvis Country. To think Elvis' swan song at 42 is the patchy Moody Blue, a thrown together album, and Glen in his 70's is this well thought out, well produced album says how much Elvis put into his recording career the last few years. And Glen knows he is dying. Amazing. Buy it, you will like it.

Sorry to be a killjoy, but the highlighted section is somewhat debatable - it may be that Glen played only on "What'd I Say" from that movie.

The clip is glorious and it's obviously Glen that EP was chanelling in Nashville 1970: I guess that's James Burton to Glen's right in the video.

Hey, Karlos has been studying Elvis for more than 40 years, I'm sure he knows what he is talking about smt175

Is that James Burton on the right side of Glen Campbell?
