Unlike most of today's instant stars he was hugely talented and deserved every success. A great musician.

It was the fabulous collaboration of Campbell and songwriter Jimmy Webb that clicked so brilliantly, otherwise I doubt his name would be in the news today. What a pairing.

Campbell was originally a session guitarist Jimmy Webb wrote his greatest songs for him as a soloist 

Jimmy Webb still travels the world singing the songs he wrote for Glenn Campbell. He has been here many times in concert

I'd say Campbell was the perfect conduit for those songs, from that songwriter, there have been few more fruitful associations in popular music.
