Yes, I just heard this on the radio. He was known for hits like "Rhinestone Cowboy", but a lot of people don't know that he was also a kick-ass guitarist and a very much in-demand session musician before he started making hit singles. He will be missed.

He was one of my mother's favorites. And coincidentally, I played Leaving on a Jet Plane on my ukulele just last night. Alzheimer's sucks.

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

Well dang, I coulda sworn I had a memory of Glen Campbell singing leaving on a jet plane. He MUST have done it on his TV show. But I sure can't find it on YouTube.

Are you sure you aren't thinking of John Denver? I'm pretty sure he wrote the song, and he definitely recorded it. The big hit was by Mary Travers of Peter, Paul, & Mary. I don't recall ever hearing Glen Campbell sing that one.

I remember him mostly for Galveston and Wichita Lineman.

Entirely possible,but to be sure Glen Campbell covered other people's songs on his show as well.

WOW. Check out the guest stars listed for his show:

RE: Rhinestone Cowboy dies at 81
I'm so sorry to hear this but he not in misery anymore. I think one of my favorite songs was Gentle On My Mind. I always loved the traveling music sound of the guitar behind the traveling lyrics. Just love that song. He didn't write it but his voice, the lyrics and the guitar all melted down into one fabulous piece of music. The lyrics are woooooonderful!

It's knowin' that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleepin' bag
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch
And it's knowin' I'm not shackled
By forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line
That keeps you in the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind
It's not clingin' to the rocks and ivy
Planted on their columns now that bind me
Or something that somebody said because
They thought we fit together walkin'
It's just knowing that the world
Will not be cursing or forgiving
When I walk along some railroad track and find
That you're movin' on the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind
Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
'Cause she turned and I was gone
I still might run in silence
Tears of joy might stain my face
And the summer sun might burn me till I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see
You walkin' on the back roads
By the rivers flowin' gentle on my mind
I dip my cup of soup back from a gurglin' cracklin' cauldron
In some train yard
My beard a rustlin' coal pile
And a dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands 'round a tin can
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
That you're waitin' from the back roads
By the rivers of my memory
Ever smilin', ever gentle on my mind

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
