Plays Guitar Left Handed with default stringing.
Junior Campbell, born William Campbell in Glasgow, Scotland (1947), is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and keyboardist.
Campbell was the lead guitarist with MARMALADE, a Scottish group that scored nearly a dozen hits in the late 1960s, including "I See the Rain" and "Reflections of My Life," both of which feature superb [left-handed] Strat solos.
You might also remember the group for their cover of The Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," which topped the UK charts in early 1969 -- a first for a Scottish band! While Campbell co-wrote all the group's original songs, Marmalade had most of their Top-40 tracks with cover material.
After leaving Marmalade in 1971, Campbell pursued a solo career (with much less guitar in evidence), counting two UK Top-40 hits: "Hallelujah Freedom" (1972) and "Sweet Illusion" (1973). One may hear a certain resemblance between Campbell's "Hallelujah Freedom" and The Wham's number-one hit "Freedom," which George Michael penned in 1984.
Campbell wrote the themes to some TV shows, notably "Tugs," "he Magic Adventures of Mumfie," "Ghost Train," and "Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends."
