    I post the link from the Indianapolis Star because Campbell had played there recently, and the Star wrote a scathing review about Campbell seeming confused and disoriented on stage.

    That's not so gentle on his mind

    It's knowing that your door is always open and you can't remember why.

    He now thinks that he is a lineman for the county.

    He probably got a few concussions when he was a lineman for Wichita.

    What a voice. What a simple, intruiging song...

    Watched True Grit last night and have always been a fan of his music. Sad news.

    When I was a kid, I wondered why he was singing about being a lie-man. At least that what he was saying ...

    But seriously, I'm bummed to hear about this. My dad really liked his music. And, Glen was, for a time, a Beach Boy.

    I think he was the only guy ever to win a Grammy in country and top 40 in the same year.

    The Wichita lineman is no longer on the line.

    Good thing he didn't drive drunk and kill himself and a friend, or else these jokes would be in bad taste and draw anger from across the Interwebs.
