Dennis Lambert, was raised in Brooklyn NY, and is now a Boca Raton real estate agent in his 60s, but as a young man in Los Angeles during the 1970s was a very successful songwriter who wrote or co-wrote over 75 Billboard Hot 100 hits. As a solo artist he released a sole album called Bags and Things in 1972. His life was recently documented in a new film that premiered at SXSW 2008 and followed him on a 2007 comeback to tour in the Phillipines where he is still revered for his popular song Of All The Things.
On his own and with his partner Brian Potter in the 1970s he wrote numerous radio ready pop, soul and yacht rock classics during a stint at ABC/Dunhill such as and The Four Tops hit classic Aint No Woman (Like The One Ive Got), and The Grass Roots top 20 hit Two Divided by Love. Other top tunes he was behind include #1 R&B single for Tavares It Only Takes a Minute, Glen Campbells crossover smash Rhinestone Cowboy , Hall & Oates Shes Gone, Covens One Tin Soldier, and British group Freddie & The Dreamers, novelty hit Do The Freddie.
In the 1980s Lambert penned the embarrassingly catchy career saving monster Starship hit We Built This City and the touching The Commodores hit Nightshift, a tribute to black music legends Jackie Wilson and Marvin Gaye. Lambert was also behind The Righteous Brothers hit Rock And Roll Heaven, which did a similar service to other lost rockers a decade earlier like Janis Joplin and Bobby Darin. ..pls enjoy!!!
Music video for Rhinestone Cowboy (Giddy Up Giddy Up) by Rikki & Daz featuring the legendary Glen Campbell.
Yes, it's UK Eurovision star Daz Sampson and his songwriting partner John Matthews in a previous incarnation which made it into the UK top 10, thanks largely to the support of BBC radio presenter Chris Moyles who made it his record of the week. Indeed, he declared the whole week "Rhinestone Cowboy Week" in an effort to get it to number one but alas it was not to be.
How Daz got Glen to agree to take part in this project is one of the small wonders of the world that make Daz the legend he is today. This video has a lot of stories attached to it, but it's more than my career is worth to disclose them right now...
This is one of 3 videos I shot in Arizona in 2002, and the first video I shot at Goldfield Mining Town, just outside Phoenix, below the Superstitious Mountains.
Thanks to Big Bob Shoos at Goldfield and also to the Mojave Muleskinners and Goldfield Gunslingers for their invaluable help.
Production by Julie Cooke at VuWest, shot by Tom Pridham, and choreographed by Curt Anthon.

Glen Travis Campbell is a Grammy Award, Dove Award winning, and two time nominated Golden Globe Award American country pop singer, guitarist and occasional actor. He is best known for a series of hits in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as for hosting a television variety show called The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour on CBS television.
Campbell's hits include "Gentle On My Mind", "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", "Wichita Lineman", "Southern Nights" and "Rhinestone Cowboy". Campbell made history by winning a Grammy in both country and pop categories in 1967: "Gentle On My Mind" snatched the country honors, and "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" won in pop. He owns trophies for Male Vocalist of the Year from both the CMA and the ACM, and took the CMA's top honor as Entertainer of the Year.
During his 50 years in show business, Campbell has released more than 70 albums. He has sold 45 million records and racked up 12 RIAA Gold albums, 4 Platinum albums and 1 Double-Platinum album. Of his 75 trips up the charts, 27 landed in the Top 10. Campbell was hand-picked by actor John Wayne to play alongside him in the 1969 film True Grit, which gave Campbell a Golden Globe nomination for Most Promising Newcomer, and gave Wayne his only Academy Award. Campbell sang and had a hit with the title song (by the same name) which was nominated for an Academy Award. He performed it live at that year's Academy Awards Show.
In 2005, Campbell was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
