 Glen Campbell Country Music Icon Dead At 81

It is a very sad day in the world of country music as “Glen Campbell” who had one extraordinary voice and could sing like a song bird has passed away at the age of 81. The man who gave the world 21 out of his 40 fabulous and most popular songs, which also included the famous “Wichita Lineman” along with “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” suffered and battled with Alzheimer’s, passed away yesterday, Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at the age of 81. A spokesperson for the highly popular “Universal Music Group,” which handles Glen Campbell’s publishing company, has verified Mr. Campbell’s passing to the infamous group, known as the “Rolling Stone.” Glen had one hell of a tremendous career which lasted for a total of six fabulous decades, and, he managed to sell well over 45 million of his awesome records. During the year of 1968, Glen Campbell had one of the best times of his life, as he actually had an outstanding year, in which he broke a record for his incredible singing career and sold way more records than even the famous “Beatles.”

Back in the year of 2011, some six years ago, Glen, at the age of 75, took it upon himself to announce to the world and, of course his fans, that he was battling a disease of which there is no cure for – that being Alzheimer’s. During the month of June in that same year, Glen had no choice but to reveal that he was forced to retire from performing at concerts and giving his fans the awesome and wonderful music that he sang for all the world to hear, as this illness would not allow him to continue singing the melody’s because of this terrible disease. Campbell’s last album, which included his first ever “Ghost on the Canvas” instrumental vocals (which included special guests and artists, such as Billy Corgan, along with Paul Westerberg and, of course Jakob Dylan) then decided to do what many singers have done in the past – he embarked on a road trip for one last tour, which he labeled as his “farewell” to all of his fans – and, three of Glen’s kids came along to back their father up.

During the beginning of this current year, Glen managed to enable his last and final album which he entitled “Adios” and was recorded in studio – of course, this album was a full collection of very popular songs from “Bob Dylan” that was previously recorded by other famous singers, along with “Harry Nilsson” and many others, which, of course, took place in a recording studio once Glen Campbell’s “Goodbye” farewell Tour was completed.

“Almost every time he sat down with a guitar, these were his go-to songs,” stated “Ashley Campbell” daughter to Glen, who gave the statement to “Rolling Stone Country.” “They were very much engrained in his memory – like, so far back that they were one of the last things he started losing.”

The world has lost a legend who sang beautiful music. Glen Campbell will truly be missed by those who loved his voice all over the world. Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to Glen’s family and friends.
