This man was once a star

Hard to believe --- in the time of the supermodel celebrity --- but this handsome devil with the Pete Rose haircut and slight overbite was once a big star.

When I was a kid, Glen Campbell was a regular on "People" magazine covers, mainly due to his partying and his tempestuous affair with Tanya Tucker.

Is it possible to be an unattractive celeb today? Name me one. Paul Giamatti, you say? Fan though I am, has anyone seen PG on the front of any magazines lately ( Film Comment doesn't count)?

I say this because I just sheepishly downloaded "Southern Nights" on my IPod. My favorite childhood song remains strangely listenable, backlash be damned.
