Not surprised. I knew he was in really bad shape for awhile.

RIP He had a good life and career.

I'm a bit familiar with him but not a huge fan. Rhinestone Cowboy is a definite classic though. RIP.

Alzheimer's, man. Fuck that shit.

Wichita Lineman is one of the great songs of the 20th century. RIP.

Re: Glen Campbell 'Rhinestone Cowboy' Singer Dead at 81

He's a favorite of mine, partially due to the fact that my dad was a fan and played his music on an 8-track in the vehicle he had while we were growing up. I just watched the documentary about his late life struggles (I'll Be Me) in the last few months. I highly recommend it.

Sad news. Not a fan of country western but I thought he and Bobbie Gentry did a good version of The Everly Brothers hit All I Have To Do Is Dream.

Also has one of the greatest lyrics in pop history:
"And I need you more than want you/And I want you for all time."

I know his work a little. He was the subject of a documentary a few years ago, largely focusing on Alzheimer's. Guaranteed to leave you teary eyed.

Re: Glen Campbell 'Rhinestone Cowboy' Singer Dead at 81

Had the pleasure to see him at the Moon River Theater in Branson, MO about 12-14 years ago.
He sang all his hit songs and his daughter Debby also sang a couple of songs plus a duet with her dad.
Glen and Andy Williams also did a couple of songs together.

Excellent Entertaining Show.

Rest In Peace!

A little awkward to do so in a tribute thread, but hey THEEK!

Re: Glen Campbell 'Rhinestone Cowboy' Singer Dead at 81

Highly, highly recommend his 2011 album, Ghost On The Canvas.

Was skeptical since I knew he was ailing from Alzheimer's back then, but saw it on Amazon Black Friday deal. Was bowled over by the quality (and wasn't ever a huge GC fan, finding a lot of his stuff too slick & smarmy). Sixteen solid tracks with several standouts that could be on a "Best of" compilation. Title track doubles as a reference to the disease that was robbing him of his memory and abilities.

https://www.amazon.com/Ghost-Canvas-...+on+the+canvas

Guests include Chris Isaak, Brian Setzer, Dick Dale, Billy Corgan, Dandy Warhols, Rick Neilsson, and other admirers from different genres.

Just saw that he had a recent "farewell" release titled Adios. Unlike Ghosts, there were lots of cover tunes. I thought it was unreleased tracks, but evidently not. Again, some duets & other helpers, and a decent final effort.

Just one sample from the album above. Written by Jakob Dylan, but I like Glen's version better.
