I don't think that there was a song he sang that I did not like. He shall be missed by many. RIP

Glen Campbell (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glen_Campbell)

He died yesterday from Alzheimer's at the age of 81.

He was a true talent and a great man of his time.

I grew up listening to him because of my parents and then saw him in the original "True Grit" (which was WAAYYY better than the remake). Tom Power on CBC Q did a great show about him and his legacy along with a really good interview with Anne Murray, he was a great talent who nurtured other great talents.

Anne Murray on the kindness and talent of Glen Campbell: 'He nurtured me' (http://www.cbc.ca/radio/q/wednesday-aug-9-2017-fleet-foxes-anne-murray-and-more-1.4238859/anne-murray-on-the-kindness-and-talent-of-glen-campbell-he-nurtured-me-1.4239942)

Just in case anyone forgets what a great guitarist he was"

I sadly only know one of his songs. All the same a loss for those who knew him or his work.

It is a long interview, but this may be some inspiration to find out more about him and his legacy and the man. He was not simple, like the rest of us he was a complex man.

Austin City Limits...

For those who don't know the show they showcase only the best of the best, not necessarily the most popular but the best of what they do. It is a fantastic show on late night PBS on Saturdays, anyone who is a true music lover (not just what you like) should watch. It is entertaining and educational.

He didn't write a lot of his own lyrics but he always chose songs to record that meant something.

Was just thinking of Glen Campbell's frenetic pacing on the William Tell Overture. I think it was on the flipside if a single we had at home as kids. Great fingering!

That was amazing!!!

Thanks for sharing. He was one of the consummate guitarists of his time.

Apparently when he had Alzheimer's he still did a farewell tour and even though he couldn't always remember all the lyrics he would just stop singing and he could play perfectly well on the guitar note for note the parts of of the song that he had lost memory of the lyrics.
