Bonus Track: “William Tell Overture,” by Glen Campbell

I am sure that, by now, you know that Glen Campbell passed away yesterday after a lengthy and very public battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.  What you may not know is this:  besides being a popular country-western singer, he was a gifted guitarist.  He played sessions for many bands, including the Beach Boys (that riff at the beginning of “Fun, Fun, Fun” is all him).

Here is Campbell’s rendition of the “William Tell Overture,” played in honor of Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels … and shared by me in honor of Glen.
