    In 1968 I was in Nam and Wichita Lineman was released. It was played often on Armed Forces Radio, which was really the only station we could listen too. That song caught on like a wild fire. Marines were singing it humming it and really enjoying it. It is one of my all time favorite recordings.

    Glen, be sure to get a guitar on the other side,

    It's a shame that he passed however he suffered terribly from Alzheimer disease for the last 8 years of his life. He had some great talent as a singer and as a man. He had his ups and downs but he never let the downs show. May he finally find peace and comfort in his next life.

    He nailed that song. Forever changed what happens behind my eyes when I see a lineman on a pole. I'm not sure just what 'iconic' signifies...

    Thanks for that, Mr. Campbell.If I have it figured right, you are with God now - and He knows that song too.

    My wife and her friends seen him play in Ole Nashville...then did a meet & greet and got a picture with him.

    A true master of more than just country music...he played with some of the best in every genre.

    He will be missed...
