Aged 81

    God speed. I hope his passing was gentle. Alzheimers is a relentless and merciless thief.

    Damn, sad news. He was one of my favorites. Soon as I get home gonna get out the guitar and music books and do him a tribute.

  • Justin St.Denis

    I am so happy my wife had the forethought to purchase his catalogue over the last couple of years. A wonderful singer and musician! We saw him three times in all – once in Ireland! Simply genius.

      It’s only in the last few years that I found out about the Wrecking Crew.

      • Justin St.Denis

        There is a documentary about the Wrecking Crew which I watched on Netflix. You may want to check it out.

    One of my favorite singers. Loved to listen to his music when I was stationed overseas.

    Great guitar player. His “best of” is on our dinner music playlist. RIP.

    • David Murrell

      RIP Mr. Campbell. I learned some nice flat-picking runs from a couple of his guitar books. He was quite the acoustic guitar player in his prime.
