Glen Campbell 1936-2017
August 9, 2017  | By Eric Gould  | 1 comment
 
Country singer Glen Campbell died Tuesday, August 9 in Nashville, six years after his Alzheimer's disease diagnosis. Campbell, a recording session guitarist, broke through with the 1967 hit “Gentle on My Mind” with John Hartford and two Jimmy Webb hits, the melancholy “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and in the clip here,  “Wichita Lineman,” perhaps the most haunting of the two. Campbell performs here in 1968 on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour where he became a popular regular and took over as a host of the brother's summer replacement series. Campbell quickly went on to host his own variety show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour which ran on CBS from 1969-72.

Even Tanya Tucker misses him as she put out a song online. He was gifted,funny and aside from the Tanya affair,a guy who helped others do better.
