Glen Campbell, the legendary country music singer and guitarist and TV host succumbed to Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 81 on 8 August 2017. Campbell died in a Nashville facility for Alzheimer’s patients.
Campbell had released more than 70 albums in his 50-year career and his hits in the sixties and seventies included “Gentle on My Mind,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “Country Boy”, “By the time I get to Phoenix” and his best-selling single, “Rhinestone Cowboy.” He had 21 Top 40 hits, and in 1968, one of his biggest years, he outsold the Beatles.
In 2014, he became a public face for Alzheimer’s, when he allowed a documentary crew film him on his final tour for the award-winning “I’ll Be Me” – a role that President Bill Clinton suggested could be remembered even more than his music.
