Glen Campbell Laid to Rest in Arkansas

It was during a day-off on that tour that late HPR Evening Jazz Host Don Gordon invited HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence to the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor for an evening on a sailboat owned by the late Steve Ozark, of Caterer to the Stars and a longtime Glen Campbell/Don Gordon friend. Campbell continued to release new music and tour even after announcing he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

When I first saw Glen Campbell's face, after he got his own TV variety show, I recall being struck by how he nearly looked like a kid. The one-time Wrecking Crew session musician sold about 50 million albums around the world, and took his talents into films, like True Grit with John Wayne, and onto TV, with his own program, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. Tanya plans to donate part of the proceeds from the song, which she co-wrote, to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. Alan Jackson ✔said: "I owe Glen my gratitude; he was my first contact in Nashville".

For those of us who were youngsters in the late 1960s and 70s, Glen Campbell's songs were ubiquitous and crossed generations. "I always did love him and that's never gonna change".

"I don't know, what am I going to do?" They played gigs together in rural joints before moving to Los Angeles. "I love Glen for so many reasons - but above all, for his humanity". The retired president Bill Clinton suggested the documentary would make Campbell remembered for more than his music. I got more phone calls.

After seeing that, I found myself searching out videos on YouTube of Campbell in his prime, and the more I see, the more I realize how unbelievable he was. "Adios" features collaborations with Willie Nelson and Vince Gill.

At first it seemed odd that the death of Glen Campbell from Alzheimer's disease, an insidious illness that first robbed him of his memory and then his life, should inspire my mind to flood with memories.

Campbell was married four times and had eight children.
