09/08/2017

Glen was a dear friend to me. One of the best. Let the Lord be with him to rest his soul and to comfort his family.” - Jerry Lee Lewis, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer

 

“We’re gonna miss Glen. He was a friend of mine for way over 50 years. He was my neighbor in LA before we both moved to Nashville and we hung out together a lot - back in the early ‘60s. It's a rough day.” - Bobby Bare, Country Music Hall of Famer

"God Bless you Glen! When I was young I wanted to sing, play, even comb my hair like Glen Campbell! The most naturally gifted human I've ever been around. He was simply amazing, we'll miss you ole pal." - Steve Wariner, Country Icon and Grand Old Opry member

"Glen Campbell was a gentleman and a joy to work with. Glen played guitar and sang with Leon Russell and David Gates on my first records in Hollywood. He will be mourned and always loved by so many." - Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night

"Back in the '80s Ambrosia had the opportunity to eavesdrop on a rehearsal Glen was having with his band. We have rarely witnessed anyone with that level of instrumental and vocal talent and he pulled it off with great tact and a great sense of humor. We were more than impressed." - Burleigh Drummond of Ambrosia

"I was 5 years old when I learned all the words to 'By the Time I Get to Pheonix.' Now I am 55 and get senior discounts on coffee. Glen's voice cuts through the years to the very day I learned it! I learned his every inflection. Who had more pure talent than Glen Campbell? Nobody." - Max T. Barnes, award-winning songwriter

"Glen Campbell was one of the best of all time. His music has always inspired me. Rest in peace." - Country artist Logan Mize

"My mom always had Glen Campbell records around the house and when I hear them now it immediately takes me back to being a little girl. I always admired his long-lasting career and how some of his most recent music, like 2011's "Ghost On the Canvas," was some of his best, which makes him a true icon. That song is so much more haunting now." - Country artist Kalie Shorr

"Glen Campbell was a true icon, the music will miss him." - Scooter Brown of the Scooter Brown Band

(L to R): Chet Atkins, Glen Campbell and Steve Wariner
