Always liked his singing a lot. Not so much a fan of his acting. Prayers are with you Glen.

If you have Netflix, there is a documentary film that came out this year where they followed Glen on his final tour in 2013.

Its called "Glen Campbell: I'll be me

It is fantastic. His alzheimers was so bad, he couldn't remember his daughter's name (the one on the right in Barry's picture), and when he would be in concert, the telepromter would have to remind him to play his guitar solos, but then he would play a sing each song flawlessly.

A must watch!

I lost all respect for him when he was married to Tanya Tucker and would beat her while he was amped up on his cocaine binges.

I'm not sure why you think that line is so profound.

I think Gentle on my Mind is even better.

"I dip my cup of soup back from a gurglin' cracklin' cauldron
In some train yard
My beard a rustlin' coal pile
And a dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands 'round a tin can
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
That you're waitin' from the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
Ever smilin', ever gentle on my mind"

I don't really think you would need a cocaine binge to justify beating Tanya Tucker...just sayin!

Ike and Glen would have been eligible to play for the Cowboys.
