    I was there and really glad I got to see him. He was already loosing it but still put on a great gig.

    Wichita Lineman one of my all time favourites.

    Sad Sad loss.

  • Genuine fan since I was a young kid

  • RIP Glen
  • Huge talent......his legacy will be several really smooth and wonderfully performed massive hits that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.
  • RIP.

    I didn't realise how prolific a session musician he'd been before making it in his own right until I watched "The Wrecking Crew" on Netflix a few weeks ago. Worth a look, music fans.

    Big fan of Glen Campbell, grew up listening to my dad's eight track albums.

  • Watched the Grammy winning documentary 'I'll be me' recently. It follows Campbell on tour as he (and his family) wrestle with his condition. Very lucky man to have such a wonderful wife and daughter, who really took care of him. The film is still available on Sky Arts.

    RIP Glen, music legend.
  • RIP Glen. Some seriously good music back there. I'm not a country fan but he wrote a lot of stuff I love. The dementia is sad, but he made a lot of people happy.
  • Very sad. T'was a good entertainer and actor, as well. RIP 'The linesman for Notts County'
