- Philadelphia Learns That Soda Tax May Be A Bad Long-Term School Funding Solution
By Laura Northrup - Tuesday Aug 22, 2017

Songwriter and guitarist who spanned country and rock eras continued his career after 2010 Alzheimer's diagnosisGlen Campbell, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist, actor and TV show host whose performing career was as panoramic as his talents, died Tuesday.Campbell, who had been living in a long-term care facility in Tennessee, was diagnosed with the degenerative brain disorder Alzheimer’s disease in late 2010, and it was announced publicly in June 2011.Over his career, Campbell — perhaps best known for the 1975 hit “Rhinestone Cowboy” — released more than 60 albums and sold 45 million records, many achieving gold, platinum and double-platinum status and posting hit singles on the country and adult contemporary charts.[...] he brandished a versatility that went beyond country; he even played with the Beach Boys in late 1964 and early 1965, subbing on tour for Brian Wilson, and singing on the Beach Boys’ legendary album “Pet Sounds.”Campbell recorded three by the composer Jimmy Webb — “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston” — that struck a chord with a public saturated with the edge and intensity of rock music of the day.After hosting a replacement for CBS’s popular “Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” Campbell got his own show, “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” which ran on CBS for three seasons (Rob Reiner was a staff writer).According to a June 3, 2016 story in The Boot, a country-music news web site, Campbell secured new management committed to unearthing music that Campbell recorded but never released.There are unreleased recordings of him with The Wrecking Crew – lots of them, Kimbrell said, referencing the legendary but largely unknown L.A. studio musicians who played on many of the 60’s greatest hits.
