Glenn Campbell Obit – This guy was an amazing musician from a humble background. He backed Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Elvis, Rick Nelson, The Beach Boys, and The Mammas and the Pappas. He was a Beach Boy for a while all before he was famous. His dad was a sharecropper and he was one of 12 kids. This a good read. Enjoy. @GlenCampbell ‏@NewWestTim @nytimes
