'Wichita Lineman' Campbell nears the end of the line

It was an exciting time, as Love remembers, "with screaming girls and good looking Glen bore the brunt of it losing a watch and getting his shirt ripped by more than enthusiastic fans". But while the Country Music Hall of Fame member was best known for country and crossover hits like "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Galveston", Campbell was in his earlier years an in-demand studio musician as a member of the fabled group known as the Wrecking Crew. He picked up the CMA Entertainer of the Year award in 1969.

Campbell recalled meeting Urban when he was still an up-and-coming musician during a trip to Australia and giving him the advice to always keep practicing - advice Urban admitted he was still following to that day, years into a successful career.

In a statement posted to his official website, Glen's cause of death is said to have been a result of his 2011 diagnoses of Alzheimer's disease, with which he fought a "long and courageous battle".

Prior to launching his career as a solo artist, Campbell was a sought-after session guitarist, playing on countless hits by a variety of music stars, as Webb noted.

The 49-year-old, who got to meet and work with Campbell over the years, acknowledged his influence on him not only as a singer and guitarist, but performer not afraid to cross the lines of country's complexity of genres.

Brian Wilson, founder of The Beach Boys and friend of Campbell, said he was broken up to hear about his death.

Our thoughts are with Campbell's loved ones during this hard time.

Campbell performed on tracks for stars such as Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.

In the film, former President Bill Clinton saluted Campbell's actions, saying his advocacy on behalf of those with Alzheimer's might ultimately outstrip his contributions to music as his most lasting legacy.

The devastating impact of the ailment was revealed, among other details, in the 2014 documentary, Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.

It is regarded as one of the greatest songs of all time.

He won another two Grammy Awards in 1968 for the best album By The Time I Get To Phoenix and best record Wichita Lineman.
