Iconic American musician Glen Campbell passed away yesterday, at the tender age of 81 years young. In addition to writing and recording a shitload of hits throughout the ’60s and ’70s (such as “Rhinestone Cowboy”), Campbell released more than 70 albums and sold over 45 million copies of said albums, earning 12 RIAA gold albums, four platinum albums, and one double-platinum album along the way. He made history in 1967 by winning four Grammys! However, some of you may just remember him for covering Green Day, and that’s totally fine. Glen, we hope you had the time of your life…
