Obituary: Glen Campbell

Sinéad O'Connor is 'safe ... not suicidal' after posting troubling video online

Campbell released the albums Ghost on the Canvas in 2012, which USA Today called "a museum-quality masterpiece", and See You There, an album for Surfdog Records that was produced by Dave Kaplan and Dave Darling, in 2013.

In 1964, he joined the Beach Boys on tour when Brian Wilson was no longer capable of playing bass and singing high harmonies following a breakdown.

Later hits included Galveston, Dreams Of The Everyday Housewife and the huge pop-crossover song Rhinestone Cowboy about trying to make it in the music business.

A sharecropper's son who was one of 12 children, he was born outside of Delight, Arkansas, and grew up revering country music stars such as Hank Williams.

Campbell's marriage to Woolen began to straighten him out. "You love music", he said. "It's a way of expressing yourself".

Campbell turned up the energy for his 1970s hits "Rhinestone Cowboy" and New Orleans music master Allen Toussaint's "Southern Nights" - songs that were hard to label and even harder to stop humming. I didn't really care what I sounded like. But as far as the rap and the heavy rock stuff, it's just too far out there for me. It might be a little cliched to say, but Glen Campbell was a musician's musician, without a doubt. "They can't know life yet". He learned guitar as a boy and played in his uncle's band as a teenager. By his early 20s, he had formed his own group, the Western Wranglers, and moved to Los Angeles. Fans will remember the song as being the focal point of his 1969-1972 CBS television series Glen Campbell's Goodtime Hour.

"I always loved that guy, he was so pleasant to be around".

"Almost every time he sat down with a guitar, these were his go-to songs", daughter Ashley Campbell told Rolling Stone Country.

His 2008 album Meet Glen Campbell featured him covering songs from U2, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne and Foo Fighters to great critical acclaim.

Mr. Campbell burst onto the scene in the mid-1960s and won an unprecedented four Grammys in the pop and country categories for 1967 - "Gentle on My Mind" winning in the country categories and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" doing so in pop.

He was host of the Glen Campbell Open on the PGA Tour from 1971 to 1983 and for a while had a daily tee time scheduled at the Malibu Country Club.
