RIP... Glen Campbell has died from complications of Alzheimer's at the age of 81. He gave us great songs including "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", "Wichita Lineman", "Galveston" "Rhinestone Cowboy" and my personal favorite, "Gentle On My Mind" just to name a few. He was also revered as a studio musician - who couldn't read music but was a brilliant "by ear" guitarist who played on hits for everyone from Frank Sinatra to The Beach Boys.
