I heard this on ESPN of all places. I don't think I own any of his music, at least not that I know of. From what I understand he was a great studio musician before he became famous for his own stuff so I may have albums that he played on.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

He was part of The Wrecking Crew, session musicians in LA, played with the Beach Boys and was the summer replacement for the Smothers Brothers. What a career.

Sail On, Rhinestone Cowboy.

I remember watching his variety show all those years ago. Great talent and great music.

Just found out a few things I didn't know about his career. He played guitar on Frank Sinatra's "Strangers In the Night", the Monkees' "I'm a Believer", and Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas". Sail on. :pirate:

Sail on Glen. The first major concert I ever went to was Glen at the Hordon Pavilion in Sydney manny years ago, incidentally the same venue where Jimmy stepped off the stage a few years ago.

I saw a documentary on his last tour and how bad his dementia was getting..It was sad to see but corageous on his part to show how devastating the effects are.
