One of the most surreal moments of my life was walking around Portmerrion (of Prisoner fame), when Glenn started booming from the tannoy system with Wichita Line Man. A great performer

He played the bagpipes! Check out YouTube or other resources to see/hear his rendition of Amazing Grace on the pipes, in his own idiosyncratic style. The fingering is decidedly unorthodox, but it works, just the same. And his pipe is in tune, which is more than some can say.

A charming and multi-talented entertainer. RIP

Played as a Beach Boy on several of their tours. Was also a very much in demand session musician for just about everyone.
"Wichita Lineman" was my favorite Campbell song.
