Legendary country music singer Glenn Campbell has died after a long battle with Alzheimer's. Campbell is best known for his 1975 hit, "Rhinestone Cowboy." He was 81 years old.
I played a lot of songs on the radio before I got into news. Glen Campbell was not one of those artists, but "Rhinestone Cowboy" was, and is the only song I know all the words to. I remember when a station I listened to growing up in San Diego would play this song over and over....then Billy Joel, Queen or The Starlight Vocal Band. Glen wasn't just "country" back then. I bought the album and would play it over and over again, memorizing the words.
Glen Cambell, "...riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo." Gone..but, as the saying goes, not forgotten.
