Campbell was one of the biggest stars of the late 1960s and 1970s. "There will never, ever be another Glen Campbell".

His last album, "Adios", was released earlier this year and contained mostly covers of songs from Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Jerry Reed and Dicky Lee. They stand as undeniable classics today, just as they did upon their release.

"Glen created a huge spot in music that was his own, both with his guitar playing but also with his great singing and entertaining - that's rare".

He opened each show with a wall-to-wall grin and proclaimed in a down-home twang, "Hi, I'm Glen Campbell!".

By then, Campbell - who briefly toured with the Beach Boys when Brian Wilson was ailing in the mid-'60s - already was a successful solo artist. Campbell kept on recording and visit for the following a very long while, scoring endless outlining nation hits all through the '80s and discharging a few of religious, gospel-impacted collections in the '90s. But the singer also racked up some hits during later stints on Atlantic and MCA Nashville. The song rose to No. 21 on the country chart.

Webb also wrote this hypnotic ballad that that made full use of Campbell's interpretive skills and silky voice. A guest-hosting spot on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour led to his own Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, which in turn helped him land a role in John Wayne's True Grit. "I am Jimmy Webb".

A massive hit for the singer in the spring of 1969 - right in the height of the Vietnam era.

Amid his chance in Los Angeles, Campbell likewise started his performance vocation, discharging a few conventional inclining nation society collections and acquiring a couple of extremely minor nation hits en route. That distinction went to Hawaiian singer Don Ho.

"Well Glen Campbell was special because he was so gifted. I appreciate her taking care of him all these years, because I know he's a handful".

Campbell: "Alzheimer's? What's Alz..." His trajectory soared until he revealed that he'd been diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2011.

Campbell continued to enjoy musical success.

Written and recorded by Larry Weiss in 1974, "Rhinestone Cowboy" received little attention until Campbell heard it on the radio and quickly related to the story of a veteran performer who triumphs over despair and hardship.

"I'm Not Gonna Miss You", which was recorded with members of Phil Spector's famous Wrecking Crew band, was based on a comment that Campbell mentioned to his co-writer and producer Julian Raymond when people would bring up his disease.

Nashville is filled with singers struggling to make it in a bruising industry - and with songs celebrating those dreamers. Between marriages three and four, he had a high-profile relationship with fellow country star Tanya Tucker, but while they were still tempestuously dating, he met Kim Woollen, who would become his wife and his longest-term relationship.
