He was a great guitarist (Glen Campbell).....lots of people have said he was as good as the best.

"In 1958, Campbell moved to Los Angeles to become a session musician. He was part of the 1959 line-up of the group the Champs, famous for their instrumental "Tequila". Campbell was in great demand as a session musician in the 1960s. He was part of the studio musicians clique known as "the Wrecking Crew", many of whom went from session to session together as the same group. In addition to Campbell, Hal Blaine on drums, Tommy Tedesco on guitar, Leon Russell on piano, Carol Kaye on bass guitar, Al Casey on guitar were part of this group of session musicians that defined many pop and rock recordings of the era. They were also heard on Phil Spector's "Wall of Sound" recordings in the early 1960s.
He was a touring member of the Beach Boys, filling in for Brian Wilson in 1964 and 1965. He played guitar on the group's Pet Soundsalbum, among other recordings. On tour, he played bass guitar and sang falsetto harmonies.

I remember he did some stuff with the Beach Boys but mostly I've heard him as a solo act. He's too mellow and I have an aversion to singer songwriters from the 70's with a few exceptions. Could be I'd like him a lot more as a silent guitarist, what was he in?
