FUN EVENING WITH
What a cool party! Maybe the coolest ever! My buddy had a get-together at his place the other night in honor of the one and only Glen Campbell! Glen's wife Kim and their talented kids were there! What a great family! Also saw a lot of old pals I haven't seen in a while. That was fun!
The food, drinks and fellowship was great.. Then the guitars came out! My dear pal Mac McAnally grabbed one, I grabbed an acoustic bass and Glen took the other... We were off and running!! It had been a while since I'd played with either one and boy it was awesome! Glen is still amazing!! Sitting beside Glen playing, doing Gentle On My Mind and Wichita Lineman, one is reminded what an icon he is! I've said it before many times..he is the most talented and fearless person I've ever met!
I heard banjo, and another acoustic guitar; it was Ashley and Shannon.. two of Glen's kids that travel and play with him. They did some tunes and wowed everyone. They are so talented..now where did they get that??
Glen has always been such an inspiration to me..his Good Time Hour T.V. show was really the catalyst that brought me to making records. Watching him made up my mind!
Ya know, sometimes those moments come along in life just out of the blue... and you know you'll remember it forever..just really special...this night was of those, and I'm very grateful to have been there and shared it with my friends...after all..he Is Glen Campbell!!
