Country music legend Glen Campbell passed away yesterday from complications with Alzheimer's.

Many people remember Campbell for his famous hits like "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Gentle On My Mind", but he was also a prolific studio musician with The Wrecking Crew, a circle of top LA session musicians whose services were often utilized in the 1960s and early 1970s. Campbell played on recordings by Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, the Monkees, Nancy Sinatra, Merle Haggard, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Phil Spector, and many others.
