Friends Remember Musician Glen Campbell

Campbell, who also hosted music and comedy shows on TV, saw his career go up further in the 1970s with hits like Rhinestone Cowboy, Southern Nights (both US No.1 hits), and Country Boy (You Got Your Feet in L.A.) but also picked up an alcohol and drug addiction and a string of divorces and affairs.

The two world-class singers and guitarists joined together for a cover of "Wichita Lineman" that features Urban strumming the unusual chords in complex voicings up the neck, while Campbell sings lead and breaks in for some tasteful lead guitar fills.

CARL JACKSON: He was just one of the most kind, generous, sweet people you could ever imagine.

A guitarist since age 4, Campbell's musical talent, boyish looks and friendly charm brought him decades of success. They were like family. CNN has reported that Campbell will be best remembered through his music which runs from the mid-60s and up to the late 80s.

Back in 2001, Campbell released his 58th album, "Glen Campbell in Concert with the South Dakota Symphony", that he recorded with the orchestra at the Washington Pavilion. A college friend, I realized, also liked those songs. It breaks my heart. Also in the medley are "I Get Around", the Beach Boys' first Number One single, its B-side, "Don't Worry Baby", and "Surfin' USA". Decked out in a white suit with a 12-piece backing band, he jumps from baritone to the highest register - "It served a goal, though, as everything in life does, friends", he quips.

"He wanted to tell the story of his Alzheimer's disease", Keach told America's ABC News. Check out the rock solid guitar work by Campbell on "I'm A Believer".

At one point India were 179 for 3 and needed 5 runs an over to win the match, but they lost five wickets in quick succession. She dismissed Natalie Sciver (51) followed by Katherine Brunt (0) to put the England women's team under pressure.

"I really like the situation I'm in because if I make a mistake now, they expect it", he joked. When he was just 4 years old, his father bought him a $5 guitar from Sears, probably not realizing that he was setting his son on a course for global stardom. He couldn't remember the lyrics. We talked about the "American Idol" victor that year, Kris Allen, because he is from Campbell's home state of Arkansas.

Campbell was one of 12 children of two sharecroppers in southwestern Arkansas. Campbell was nominated again for an Oscar in 2015 for "I'm Not Gonna Miss You", a song from the documentary "Glen Campbell".

MARTIN: Webb reflected on hearing his songs come alive through Campbell.

"I am writing because I think you deserve some sort of message from me but I am too upset to write very well or at any great length", wrote Webb, who published his memoir, "The Cake and The Rain" in April.

At the time, I didn't know that he was likely in the early stages of Alzheimer's. Let people listen to that one for a long, long, long time because he sang like an angel.
