Glen Campbell

‘Twas a time when guitar players, among other instrumentalists, oft doubled on the then new electric bass in the 1950s and early ‘60s. As evidenced when Brian Wilson first retired from the road; the Beach Boys bass chair was ably filled by Wrecking Crew session whiz Glen Travis Campbell, who toured with the band from late ’64 until early ‘65. Glen cut guitar parts on Pet Sounds (1966), among other seminal Boys sides and also played bass for Ricky Nelson previous to embarking on a multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning recording and television career.
