While he was still rising to fame in the music world, the chart-topping singer also began a television career as host of "The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour", which featured artists like Ray Charles, Johnny Cash and Linda Ronstadt. Campbell played on records with such performers as Elvis, Frank Sinatra, the Monkees, Ray Charles, Rick Nelson and the Beach Boys.

"When he was on stage and started to sing, you knew there was a star on stage", Rumble says.

"I just woke up and said, I can quit this".

Clint Black wrote in the 140-character site that he was "very sad to see Glen Campbell go after a long goodbye" due to his long battle with Alzheimer's disease, which he had been fighting since 2011. I'm here for you.
