Music star Glen Campbell dies

Glen Campbell died on Tuesday due to complications associated with Alzheimer's. I remember once being backstage putting on a camel costume to go on and sing "Ahab the Arab" and he showed up and said 'Well, it's come to this has it?' It's been a long goodbye since his diagnosis with Alzheimer's Disease. Dolly Parton said, "Glen Campbell was one of the greatest voices of all time".

Tulsa-based music industry veteran Jim Halsey provided this statement after Campbell's death: "Thank you, Glen Campbell for your treasures and your art that you shared with the multitudes".

Lenny Kravitz: "Besides being an awesome solo artist, Glen Campbell was also a genius studio musician - as part of the Wrecking Crew - playing on recordings from The Beach Boys to Frank Sinatra".

Drummer Hal Blaine of the Wrecking Crew told The GuardianCampbell "was one of those great guitarists who could hear a part once and had it down pat".

Campbell was one of country music's greatest crossover artists, from his 1967 Grammy award-winner "Gentle On My Mind" to this 1975 multimillion seller.

"I said 'Glen, why don't you get that thing covered up?' He said 'I'm going to keep that all the time, it will remind me of you.' So that little dagger, now his daughter went and had one put on here", said Edge.

As time went on, there were questions about whether she might retire, especially after a half-dozen first-round losses at majors. Halep, the second seed, will have her hands full with Johanna Konta , the sixth seed, in her quarterfinal match.

Aaberg says some who suffer from Alzheimer's end up living a decade or more with the illness, but most will end up needing a full-time caregiver. He recorded songs for everyone from the Byrds to Elvis Presley to Frank Sinatra, but with the Beach Boys, Campbell almost had a full-time gig.

As Campbell's popularity grew, he began to appear on television shows and movies. Both "Galveston" and "Wichita Lineman", my favorite of the two, were written by the talented songwriter Jimmy Webb, who also wrote "MacArthur Park", another great song in my opinion. The donations will benefit the Glen Campbell Memorial Fund.

We are thankful for Glen's time on earth and will forever hold onto his legacy as not only a famed country music star, but also the impact of Christ in his life and how transformative that power really is.

"I love singing gospel music and hymns".

The Country Music Hall of Fame artist released his final album earlier this year titled "Adios". Born in Billstown, Arkansas, Campbell, was the seventh of twelve children, and he learned to play the guitar from his Uncle, who had a band called Dick Bills and the Sandia Mountain Boys. Here is the song he wrote for his wife, "I'm Not Gonna Miss You".
