Glen Campbell

Last year, Glen Campbell released his 61st (!) studio album, Ghost on the Canvas (with songs written by Paul Westerberg, Teddy Thompson and Jakob Dylan) at the same time revealing he was suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. He then announced he would head out on a Goodbye Tour so fans could have one last chance to see him. With help from teleprompters and three of his kids who are in his band (drummer Cal, 28; guitarist Shannon, 27; and banjo player Ashley, 25) the iconic country star has been performing classics like "Rhinestone Cowboy,' "Wichita Lineman" and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," all over the country.

Glenn Campbell's Goodbye Tour, which has added a North East leg, hits NYC on October 13 at Carnegie Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (9/7) at 11 AM. While he may have trouble remembering the words, the man can still play guitar like nobody's business.

A list of all tour dates and some classic Glen Campbell videos are below.

Of the five videos you posted, Campbell did not write one on those songs.

I love Preservation Hall, they're an incredible band and really good people. But why bring them into this discussion to say they're "better than Glen Campbell"? That doesn't make any sense. They aren't in competition. Please respect Glen, a singer and guitar player who is doing what he loves as long as he can.

Glen is one of the all time great guitar shredders... And his voice is golden... Saw him at town hall... Brilliant show...

Todd Youth, a former member of the notorious New York skinhead band Warzone, is a member of Mr Campbell's touring band.

Unlike Buck Owens, Glen Cambell was one of the nicest men I have ever met.

Remember the Diplomat "Cafe Crystal", Glen? Low budget Owens should have taken your lead! You, nice man vs. BIG CREEP. Owens. You saved his ass from a whipping that night. You didn't know that, you were just being the nice guy that you are.
