RIP Glen Campbell

These posts are getting a little too common...

Guitar virtuoso and velvet voiced Glen Campbell finally succumbed to the effects of Alzheimer's and passed away yesterday.  A man of massive talents, he brought country into the mainstream via his popular TV show and via crossover hits like Wichita Lineman and Rhinestone Cowboy

Unfortunately, he also had massive problems, and his cocaine abuse and alcoholism kept him from even greater heights.  Yet, despite those setbacks, his talent showed through.

He was an American icon, a master musician, and a rare combination of talent, charm and looks.

You might not miss us, Glen, but we'll miss you.
