A member of the Country Hall of Fame, in 2011 Campbell announced that he was suffering from Alzheimer's, an issue dealt with in the 2014 documentary "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me", directed by James Keach. Ashley also released a music video for the song. I remember being touched by the tenderness of his children sharing the stage with their father at one of his last performances in Branson, MO.
Campbell had a wild drug-and-alcohol-fueled romance with country singer Tanya Tucker, who was 22 years younger than he, that was regularly covered by the tabloids. Hell, in 1968, he outsold The Beatles.
Campbell, one of the biggest stars of American country and pop music in the late 1960s and 1970s, had hits such as Rhinestone Cowboy and Witchita Lineman.
We salute every person who is caring for someone with Alzheimer's or who has lost a loved one to the disease. This documented challenges he and the family faced as his illness symptoms became more severe. Check out the videos below for a peek at the unbelievable range of material he produced over the course of his singularly impressive career below. As one of his earliest solo chart toppers, it became part of his incredibly popular late-sixties run of classics.
Making sure your solar eclipse glasses are safe
The moon passes right in front of the sun at just the right time so that we go from light to darkness in just a few minutes. A total solar eclipse means that Earth , the sun, and the moon, which all orbit in space in predictable paths, will align.
In 1960, Campbell moved to Los Angeles where he had a regular job at a music company, where he was a song-writer and chipped in to record demos. The popularity of the song led to a nationwide country-music craze that saw mechanical bulls and cowboy hats fill bars across the nation. "There will never be another Glen Campbell and he will be greatly missed". This made it easier for Campbell to connect with a whole new generation of fans, thereby renewing his popularity.
Campbell hosted his own television show - The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour - from 1969 to 1972 and took his chiseled good looks to Hollywood.
But he made a simple promise regarding Campbell's legacy. Wichita Lineman in particular became a huge success and was one of the most requested songs by USA soldiers stationed in Vietnam during the war. The set opened with a song Mr. Campbell wrote, "Less of Me", that caught his generous spirit. He writes the song with Julian, records it, sometimes a line at a time, sometimes a word at a time, and he wins a Grammy and gets nominated for an Oscar."If that ain't a hero", Keach said.
"I'm just an old jazzer", Campbell told me with a laugh.
Peter Frampton: "Dear Glen Campbell Rest In Peace As well as your incredible musical abilities you were one of the most down to earth ppl I have ever known".
