Dick Gregory, Comedian and Civil Rights Activist, Dead at 84

quote [ Dick Gregory, pioneering comedian, author and civil rights activist, died Saturday at the age of 84.

In the early Sixties, Gregory became a fixture of the Civil Rights Movement: He marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. at Selma, where he and his wife were briefly jailed, he told the Chicago Tribune. He was friends with Malcolm X and Medgar Evers and ran for mayor of Chicago in 1967.

During the tumultuous time around the 1968 Democratic National Convention, Gregory ran for President as a write-in candidate; Hunter S. Thompson was among those who voted for Gregory, as the gonzo journalist revealed numerous times in The Great Shark Hunt. Gregory wrote Write Me In! in 1968 about his presidential bid. ]

He was on TV a lot until his humor got too close to the truth.

Glen Campbell, Dead at 81

quote [ Glen Campbell, the indelible voice behind 21 Top 40 hits including "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Wichita Lineman" and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," died Tuesday. He was 81. A rep for Universal Music Group, Campbell's record label, confirmed the singer's death to Rolling Stone. During a career that spanned six decades, Campbell sold over 45 million records. In 1968, one of his biggest years, he outsold the Beatles. ]

That hurts me. I got my first Telecaster when I was a kid because of this man. A lot of my musical style and composition for the past few decades were directly influenced by his songwriting. RIP Cowboy.
