One thought on “Ralph Campbell Jr.

  1. Sorry to hear of Ralph’s passing. He and my Dad played in bands together, and Jr was highly revered in our family for his musical talent and good nature. We used to visit their gigs occasionally when we were kids, and during breaks he used to tell us funny stories of his experiences in the southeastern MN music/bar scene. I still have a cassette tape of some of his original songs. My sympathies to his family.
