Glen Campbell, 'Rhinestone Cowboy' Singer, Dead at 81

Singer-guitarist and TV host who achieved crossover success succumbs to Alzheimer's disease

Glen Campbell, the indelible voice behind 21 Top 40 hits including "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Wichita Lineman" and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," died Tuesday. He was 81. A rep for Universal Music Group, Campbell's record label, confirmed the singer's death to Rolling Stone. During a career that spanned six decades, Campbell sold over 45 million records. In 1968, one of his biggest years, he outsold the Beatles.

Lots of folks don't know that Campbell was an 'A' class musician, not just your average guitarist. Campbell made his bones playing for years with the 'Wrecking Crew'. He will be missed, R.I.P.

Watching the documentary on his decline and last tour is really heart wrenching. RIP Mr. Campbell.

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

This is a live performance of Wichita Lineman from 2001. The ,'song combines Glen Campbell's effortless voice with Jim Webb's genius for arrangement, and it is fascinating (to me at least) to watch the instrumental parts in the video. Glen sings and plays some nifty guitar at the same time.

https://youtu.be/ok45aqTd0cM?t=3 (the clip would not work when I attempted to embed it with the tags)

Much has been made of the lines, 'And I need you more than want you; And I want you for all time,' and I like the way Webb balances the widescreen imagery of the weather with the yearning in this 'chorus'. As others have noted, it is quite haunting. It is made even more so with Glen's passing.

This is probably the best clip I've found of Glen Campbell tearing up the guitar. Watch and enjoy.

A lot of people also may not know he was a part of the band Sagittarius who were a light psychedellic band and had a hit with "My World Fell Down". It's on the Nuggets box set which has a lot of good psych and garage rock from the mid to late 60's.
