Guitarist and singer-songwriter Glen Campbell (1936-2017) also worked as an actor and session musician. In a career spanning five decades he sold 45 million albums worldwide, making history in 1967 by winning four Grammys. Many remember hits like “Wichita Lineman,” “Gentle on My Mind,” and “Rhinestone Cowboy,” but few may be aware of his friendship with Elvis Presley, his work with the Beach Boys, or his membership in the musical collective known as The Wrecking Crew.
