Dolly Parton pays heartfelt tribute to 'greatest musician' Glen Campbell

At another point, the teleprompter says, "Glen play a long guitar solo here", which Campbell comically reads out loud and then pulls off a wicked guitar solo, full of high speed picking and fiery licks, a testament to his talent as a guitar player.

After a living with Alzheimer's disease for a number of years, Campbell died in Nashville, at a facility for Alzheimer's patients, around 10AM on Tuesday (Aug. 8). R.I.P. Glenn Campbell, one of the greats and much-loved by millions! But after watching the documentary about Campbell's early days with the Wrecking Crew, I figured I had to see "I'll Be Me".

In a statement posted to his official website, Glen's cause of death is said to have been a result of his 2011 diagnoses of Alzheimer's disease, with which he fought a "long and courageous battle". You've heard him, even if you didn't know it, playing on "Tambourine Man" by The Byrds and "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" by The Righteous Brothers.

I've never been what you'd call a Glen Campbell super fan, but he has been a cultural touchstone for me, especially from my younger days. It was part of Campbell's Goodbye Tour.

"I don't know, what am I going to do? I was making more money than I ever made just doing studio work".

His first few solo releases struggled to gain notice but in 1967 things changed nearly overnight with the release of "Gentle On My Mind" and then "By The Time I Get To Phoenix". "I'm going to miss this a lot'".

Campbell hosted his own television show - The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour - from 1969 to 1972 and took his chiselled good looks to Hollywood.

After seeing that, I found myself searching out videos on YouTube of Campbell in his prime, and the more I see, the more I realize how fantastic he was. Campbell, who was married four times and had eight children, had well-publicised struggles with drinking and drugs.
