'Wichita Lineman' Campbell nears the end of the line

Rolling Stone also quoted some comments that Jimmy Webb made earlier this year, as he was, even then, paying tribute to Glen Campbell's many accomplishments, and comparing his impact on American music to the Beatles' impact on British music.

The real highlight came when Campbell sang his signature song, "Gentle On My Mind", written by John Hartford.

In the later years, Love continues to write, it was always fun seeing Campbell, and he will be remembered as one of the country's greatest musicians. "We had a five-day-a-week radio show, six, seven years". The star has also played in several movies, including True Grit, in which he gave the reply to John Wayne. "You were a shining light in so many ways", said country megastar Brad Paisley.

It wasn't long after that the rising star with the wide smile, dimpled chin and sideburns would add television show host to his resume, first as co-host of a 1968 summer replacement for "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour", and the next year as host of "The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour", a CBS prime-time variety show that aired until 1972.

Campbell relived his time with the Beach Boys in the above video clip from one of his performances in the early Eighties.

"I did what my Dad told me to do - 'Be nice, son, and don't cuss. There's no shame in my game and I am going to go out singing the song.' That was Glen".

Dow tops 22000 as Apple rallies; euro strengthens
The euro, coming off its best month since March 2016, reached a new 2 1/2-year high against the ailing dollar. Automaker Ford (F.N) fell 2.41% and General Motors (GM.N) lost 3.39% after they reported lower monthly sales.

And it showed in his remarkable success; over his career, he produced 70 studio albums, 45 million record sales, nine United States number ones, 12 gold records and four platinum records. A 2011 album, "Ghost On the Canvas", included contributions from Jacob Dylan, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick and Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins.

He chronicled his fight with alcohol and cocaine addiction in his 1994 autobiography, Rhinestone Cowboy. He became a mainstay of gossip columns in 1980, with his third marriage over, when he struck up a relationship with country spitfire Tanya Tucker.

"He could sit and play with any guitar player in the world, from George Benson to Eric Clapton".

In his final tour in 2012, Campbell played the iconic Mystic Lake Casino, in Prior Lake, Minnesota.

Brian Wilson, founder of The Beach Boys and friend of Campbell, said he was broken up to hear about his death. He allowed cameras into his life at that point to document the struggle with Alzheimer's in a documentary, "I'll Be Me", released in 2014. He was unable to answer some of host Ellen DeGeneres' questions, but when he got up to play a song on his guitar, he was still the ideal and talented Glen Campbell everyone remembered. He was a flawed man who had battled chemical dependency, martial infidelity and other issues that made him more human than a saint. He married Kimberly "Kim" Woollen in 1982 and their three children - Cal, Shannon and Ashley - are proficient musicians who worked in his touring band. Best known for his 1975 hit, 'Rhinestone Cowboy, ' he also had over 20 hits in the U.S. Top 40 while releasing 25 Top 10 singles on the country charts.
