Glen Campbell finally succumbed to Alzheimer's disease yesterday. It was announced about 17 hours ago. Poor Glen, his last years were a tragic struggle for dignity, but now he is free.

John Wayne Kim Darby and Glen in True Grit

Glen was one of my very very favorite performers throughout my entire life. I loved his TV show when I was a kid and of course he was so good in the John Wayne movie TRUE GRIT. The theme song from TG is still so beautiful..

A rep for Universal Music Group, Campbell's record label, confirmed the singer's death to Rolling Stone. During a career that spanned six decades, Campbell sold over 45 million records. In 1968, one of his biggest years, he outsold the Beatles.

Glen had so many gorgeous songs...Witchita Lineman stands tall to this day.. As will Glen Campbell's talent and legend. He was loved by his peers, friends, family and his legions of fans around the globe. RIP
