William Eugene Campbell (1929-2008)
born in Arkansas, is an American Guitarist
At the age of two Boo started picking on his dad's guitar, and at the age of four Boo's natural talent was known by accomplished musicians from all around. His perfect pitch led musicians to bring their stringed instruments to Boo for tuning. As a young man, Uncle Boo taught his nephew Glen Campbell how to play the guitar. Glen then became an in-demand Los Angeles studio musician playing on records for The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra. Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and many others. Glen later became and international super star as an artist in his own right, and has always given his "Uncle Boo" credit for teaching him how to play the guitar.
Gene "Boo" Campbell represents the many teachers, family members, and friends, who selflessly give up their time and talent lifting many artists to the spotlight while remaining in the shadows themselves.
Always accepting demos of one song per artist/band
It's been said that when Boo was teaching the youngsters how to play guitar, he always had a pair of pliers in his back pocket.
If that pinkie wouldn't quite reach, Uncle Boo whipped out pliers and pulled that little pinkie to the string to get that chord. So you better use that pinkie if you want to be like Boo.
