Saw this on my news feed. Sad news. I knew he wasn't well.
One of the great ones.
Glen Campbell was always one of my most favorite singers, as well. I knew that he was suffering with Alzheimer's; and did not have long to live. We have lost a great singer today.....
So then, I was looking to find more info about his death, and I found this celebrity death hoax. Which one is true ? This one is dated for yesterday. Did they do a hoax and then he really did die the next day ?
I just found another one on Youtube that says RIP from 2015, so when did he really die, or not ?
the Wichita lineman was always my fav. RIP
I corrected the link above to his official website. Here it is again. glencampbell.com
RIP dear Glen
OH Nooooo.....I know it was only a matter of time, I've followed his alzheimer journey closely... what a sad day but it was inevitable..R.I.P Glen, one of the greatest crossover country singer/ songwriter and musician
These are my very favourite songs of Glens'....his last release after he'd been already diagnosed with AD on the album Ghost on a Canvas
''In the tender "A Better Place," featured on 2012’s Ghost on the Canvas, Campbell stares his Alzheimer's diagnosis in the face, singing, "Some days I’m so confused, Lord, my past gets in the way," before professing belief that a better place awaits after he slips off this mortal coil.''
Here he is singing it at his last concert where he was in the deeper throes of AD, and the concert was a huge success, although most of the time Glen didn't know where he was..he had to be led to the stage, and they had a devil of a job keeping him in one place and prayed that he would remember his words, but as soon as he got on stage he was almost back to the Glen of old, music was just part of his soul..and he knew how to sing and play up until almost the end..
Behind him is his lead guitarist son, and his daughter ashley is on keyboard... it was very much a family affair in the end..
Yes I always loved Glen Campbell's singing, he became somehow associated with the early years of my marriage, the Jimmy Webb songs Glen sang I especially liked.....
I recall feeling sad watching his farewell concert in 2011 a year after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's... RIP
Another fan here - a trouper to the end was Glen
And, Jimmy Webb - so very good too a master of song writing
