Well, I thought about this last week and decided I can’t resist … he was just such a remarkable musician—as you’ll see by questions that follow!
1-He was the seventh son of a seventh son … where was Glen born (4/22/36)?
2-Before he was a recording artist, he was a hit song writer. Can you name the tune he wrote that was a hit for the Vogues?
3-As a studio musician, Glen’s guitar work can be heard on hundreds of tunes—a couple rather iconic. Any idea which Beach Boys’ hits he played on?
4-His first #1 hit told the story of a glittery Westerner. Title?
5-In 1967, he won four Grammys—name at least one of the songs and one of the awards.
6-The following year Campbell outsold which iconic foursome?
7-Name two cities that Glen sang about (title tunes).
8-He didn’t just sing—he co-starred in a classic. Name the movie and its “other” star.
9-He also had a hit TV variety show for several years—which employed some gifted writers. One “wild and crazy” guy went on to star in movies; another “Meathead” also starred in TV and film. Name one of these guys.
10-He did add to revenue with a number of commercials—name one company for which Glen crooned.
