Wasn't he that guy that fought people in that movie, you know, the one with the monkey?

ETA:  This is a horrible disease that shouldn't be joked about.  However, humor is one of the methods which people use to deal with this type of stress.  

Consider it a coping mechanism.  Someone will undoubtedly be along to criticize me for this "uncaring display of crudeness".  I get it.  Once you've dealt with it, you will never forget it.  It is one of the biggest sorrows I've ever been a part of and I've seen some bad things.

Damn.Fuck of a way to go.

I've seen too many people go thru that ...............I hope if I get to that point I would still be with it enough to end it.There is a lot said for just going,rather than going thru that (or the family going thru it).

He wrote times like these?

Campbell was in great demand as a session musician in the 1960s. He was part of the studio musicians clique known as "the Wrecking Crew", many of whom went from session to session together as the same group. In addition to Campbell, Hal Blaine on drums, Tommy Tedesco on guitar, Leon Russell on piano, Carol Kaye on bass guitar, Al Casey on guitar were part of this group of session musicians that defined many pop and rock recordings of the era. They were also heard on Phil Spector's "Wall of Sound" recordings in the early 1960s.


These people, esp. Blaine and Carol Kaye were prolific.  I never realized Campbell was part of them

Not surprised at all.

He spent a good part of his life killing brain cells. Even without the effects of Alzheimer's, he didn't have all that many of them left.

Sad news for a hell of a singer.
Link Posted: 6/22/2011 7:39:12 PM EDT
Wichita Lineman was a song that struck me deeply as a kid...very melancholy song.  I grew up watching his turbulent life....cocaine, alcohol.  Man had a hell of a lot of talents that he could have done so much more with.  I am surprised he has lived as long as he has.  Guess I'll drink one in his memory this weekend.  It's downhill from here for him.

Forgot how good his voice actually was. That was very cool. Thanks.



May his suffering be minimal and his contributions remembered.

Rhinestone Cowboy was the second song ever hit #1 on Billboard's Country and Hot 100 charts simultaneously.

Glenn is a great guy. Met him on several occasions.

He's actually a hell of a JAZZ GUITARIST. He played with Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and even Elvis.

God bless him.

He sobered sometime in the 80's (maybe it was '81?) & has been on the wagon since.  I'm sure he was probably an ass during his partyin' yrs - most users are - but it seems like he tried to live better after he got off the self-medication crutch.

I really liked him when I was a kid. He had his own TV show.

Wouldn't wish that on anyone. My father had it before he died......
Link Posted: 6/22/2011 8:24:37 PM EDT
Very sad.

He always seemed like a nice guy.

Shame

Had some really big hits back in the day. I remember my Mom taking me to football practice when I was in the fifth or sixth grade hearing "Rhinestone Coyboy" on the radio, telling my Mom that I liked that song. Wow 36 years ago.
Link Posted: 6/22/2011 8:52:32 PM EDT
I watched my Grandmother and her little brother at the end, the youngest of 25 children, the last two left.



She was 90, her organs shutting down one at a time. She was in major pain but would never complain, she knew every minute every day what was going on until the day she finally decided not to go to dialysis anymore....



About the same time her little Brother was 88 or so. He had called me by my (dead before I was born) Grandfathers name for quite a few years, and had his gun plugged and ammo taken away....one day he started smearing poo on the walls and then my Aunt sent him to the old folks home....
After watching the two of them and knowing what each knew (or not), I knew then I wanted to smear poo on the walls. Both are hard on the family, but if you smear poo you dont know a thing.

I saw him perform at a motorcycle charity benefit ride less than a year ago. His stellar voice and killer guitar chops from back in the days was not there, but he seemed totally coharent, and played quite well with the crowd between songs.

Very sorry to hear this about one of my favorite and very talented musicians.
