Just to mention. He is gone.

My sister is singing that song in our kitchen now, and shortly it will be streamed on Chromecast here.

Have to get the sister sorted first though. It is a song that stays in yer head whether you want it to or not.

He was a fabulous singer. Used to be in the Beach boys too and was a member of the Wrecking Crew, who played sessions on most of the American hits in the 60s

RIP. He had been ill - Alzheimer's - for quite some time.

Linemen everywhere are tipping their hats to Glen.

I guess he's really gone...

Glen Campbell's daughter, Ashley Campbell, sings "Remembering"

Written by Ashley Campbell, ostensibly about her father Glen Campbell’s battle with Alzheimer’s, and the consequences of the illness of their entire family. The song appears on the soundtrack to James Keach’s 2014 documentary, I’ll Be Me, about the aging singer’s final “Goodbye” tour.

Bone for bone we are the same
Bones get tired and they can't carry all the weight
We can talk until you can't even remember my name
Daddy don't you worry, I'll do the remembering…

RIP Glen.

Wichita Lineman.....By the Time I Get To Phoenix

Galveston--a great anti-war song
