Glen Campbell: 1936-2017


merican music legend Glen Campbell has passed away from complications associated with Alzheimer’s Disease. He was 81.

In his over 50-year career as singer and guitarist, including learning to play the bagpipe for on-stage performances, Glen Campbell provided an almost endless compilation of memorable moments.

The 1969 collaboration – during the massively destructive Vietnam War – with fellow American music legend Stevie Wonder in performing the Bob Dylan classic “Blowing in the Wind” still resonates today after 48 years. Glen Campbell in 1969 at age 33 was in his prime physical condition.

The message of songwriter and Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan, delivered with utmost passion by Glen Campbell and Stevie Wonder in the following performance, is a message which remains always relevant no matter the artist. True artists through their works reach places beyond space and time … beyond life and death on Earth.

Glen Campbell was a true artist.
