The Rhinestone Cowboy Rides Into the Heavens

Glen Campbell

Glen Campbell, whose weekly network television show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, introduced country music to millions of Americans, has died at age 81 after a struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Glen Travis Campbell was born April 22, 1936, into a poor sharecropping family near Delight, Arkansas. He began learning to play guitar when he was 4 years old and by 10 had become proficient on the instrument. During his teens, he quit school to play in his uncle’s Western swing band and afterward formed his own group, the Western Wranglers.

He listed among his guitarist role models Chet Atkins, Grady Martin, Barney Kessel, Hank Garland and Django Reinhardt.

In 1960, Campbell moved to Los Angeles and quickly became lead guitarist for the Champs, an instrumental group that had scored a No. 1 hit two years earlier with “Tequila.” Campbell worked with the band for a year and played on its 1962 Top 40 single, “Limbo Rock.”

Signed to Crest Records, Campbell debuted on the pop charts in 1961 with “Turn Around, Look at Me.” That song peaked at No. 62.

The following year, Campbell moved to Capitol Records, where he would remain for the next 18 years and enjoy his biggest hits. (After recording for other labels, Campbell returned intermittently to Capitol and its affiliate labels during the 1990s and early 2000s.) His first country chart single, “Kentucky Means Paradise,” recorded with the Green River Boys, came in 1962 and went to No. 20.

Campbell broke into session work in Los Angeles as a result of recording demos with future producer Jimmy Bowen — at $10 a song. Impressed by Campbell’s guitar work and vocals on the demos, producers began booking him for master sessions.

During the early to mid-’60s, Campbell recorded with such luminaries as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, the Righteous Brothers, Elvis Presley, Nat King Cole, Rick Nelson, the Mamas & Papas, Bobby Darin and the rising country star Merle Haggard. At various times between 1964 and 1967, he also toured and recorded with the Beach Boys.

Campbell came into his own as a crossover recording artist in the latter half of the 1960s. His 1967 recording of John Hartford’s “Gentle on My Mind” earned him two Grammys, even though the single peaked at No. 30 on the country charts and No. 39 on the pop charts. He won three more Grammys for his recording of Jimmy Webb’s “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” including the album of the year Grammy in 1968.

Both recordings would later be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame: “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” in 2004 and “Gentle on My Mind” in 2008.

In all, Campbell charted 75 country singles, five of which went No. 1: “I Wanna Live” (1968); “Wichita Lineman” (1968), “Galveston” (1969), “Rhinestone Cowboy” (1975) and “Southern Nights” (1977). He also posted a total of 36 singles on the pop charts, two of which, “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Southern Nights,” went No. 1.

The advent of The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, which began airing on CBS-TV in January 1969, vaulted Campbell to superstardom. “At the time, it was the bridge between country and pop,” he told an interviewer. The singer’s sunny disposition and musical eclecticism set the tone for the series, which, until it ended in June 1972, paired him with the likes of Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Dionne Warwick, Anne Murray, Linda Ronstadt, John Hartford, Cher, B.J. Thomas, Ricky Nelson, Bobbie Gentry, Jerry Reed, the Smothers Brothers, Roger Miller and dozens of other contemporary talents.

His popularity led to Campbell’s roles in the movies True Grit (1969) and Norwood (1970). As a recording artist, he continued to have more success on the country than on the pop charts. The former yielded him four Top 5’s and three Top 10’s between 1970 and 1975, when “Rhinestone Cowboy” exploded; the latter only one Top 10.

Campbell’s charted his last pop single – “I Love My Truck” — in 1981 but triumphed through the rest of that decade with such high-flying country hits as “A Lady Like You,” “It’s Just a Matter of Time,” “The Hand That Rocks The Cradle,” “Still Within the Sound of My Voice,” “I Have You” and “She’s Gone, Gone, Gone.”

Campbell married four times and is the father of eight children. His affair with and subsequent third marriage to Mac Davis’ former wife landed him in the tabloids, as did his affair with the much younger Tanya Tucker in the early 1980s and his brush with the law for drunk driving in 2003.

Campbell married Kimberly “Kim” Woollen in 1982. Their three children — Cal, Shannon and Ashley – are accomplished musicians who worked in his touring band beginning in 2010.

In 2005, Campbell was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, an honor he called “one of the biggest highlights of my life.”

Campbell returned to Capitol Records to release his 2008 album, Meet Glen Campbell, which featured his recordings of songs from U2, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Jackson Browne, and Foo Fighters and Green Day.

In June 2011, he announced that he was afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease and would begin his final tour later that year. The tour coincided with the August 2011 release of Ghost on the Canvas, a farewell album featuring songs written by Jakob Dylan, Teddy Thompson and the Replacements’ Paul Westerberg.

With the full support of Campbell’s wife Kim, performances from the final tour are featured in the 2014 documentary, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, which also documents the challenges he and the family faced as his Alzheimer’s symptoms became more severe. Campbell and songwriter-producer Julian Raymond’s “I’ll Be Me” was nominated for best original song at the 2015 Academy Awards.

In 2016, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and Toby Keith performed a Campbell’s hits during the 10th annual ACM Honors ceremony in Nashville. Kim Campbell accepted the Academy of Country Music’s Career Achievement Award on his behalf.

In June, Universal Music released Adios, Campbell’s final album of all-new recordings. Produced by Carl Jackson, the project featured material Campbell had never previously recorded, including songs written by Jimmy Webb, Willie Nelson, Roger Miller, Jerry Reed and Bob Dylan.

In recent years, Campbell resided at a memory care facility in Nashville.

Palisade Search & Rescue-Inyo County Sheriff’s Department

At approximately 7:00am on Monday August 7th, Inyo County Sheriff’s Dispatch was notified by a satellite phone from an unrelated climbing guide of a stranded party on the face of Starlight Peak, on the climber’s right of a route called “The X”, in the North Palisade area above Big Pine. The party consisted of a female that was alive and not seriously injured, and a deceased male.  Sequoia and Kings National Park (SEKI) also received a notification via a personal locator beacon of an emergency in the Palisades area.

SEKI launched their helicopter unit, and located the party on the Inyo County side of the peak. Inyo Sheriff’s Office requested CHP aerial support and began working with CHP Central Division Air Operations H-40 out of Fresno. One Inyo search and rescue (SAR) member went to recon the site with H-40; however, due to the lateness in the day, high altitude, and wind, they could not complete the rescue. Air National Guard was activated for a Chinook, but the steepness of area was not favorable for the size of the large helicopter.

After discussing the location of the mission in depth, Inyo SAR team members determined conditions were not safe for accessing the subjects via climbing or rappelling. The area of the peak is known as one of the most dangerous walls in the Palisades. The team decided to request aid from Yosemite Search and Rescue (YOSAR), specifically for their high angle rescue team. YOSAR helicopter 551 responded and was able to rescue the female just before dark last night. They returned to the scene the following morning to extract the deceased male.

Further information revealed that the party of two from Durango, Colorado climbed Starlight Peak on Sunday August 6th via Starlight Buttress. Both were considered experienced mountaineers. The party reached the summit around 2:00pm, and shortly afterwards began their descent along the north-west ridge.  After a few hours, they left the ridge and began rappelling down the face, no longer following their intended descent route. Partway down the face, an accident occurred while the female subject was descending; the system failed and became unattached from the wall. Though the rope was no longer attached to the wall, it became tangled on a rock feature and arrested the fall. The female in the party ended up tangled in the rope, and the male was hanging below. The female used a prusik loop (a friction hitch or knot used to attach a loop of cord around a rope to escape from a rope), and ascended to a small ledge where she then waited 26 hours for rescue.

Inyo SAR and Inyo Sheriff’s Office thank all of the assisting agencies: SEKI, CHP Central Division Air operations, Air National Guard, and YOSAR.

Additional West Nile Virus Positive Mosquitos Found

The Owens Valley Mosquito Abatement Program (OVMAP) confirmed today that mosquito samples trapped last week again tested positive for West Nile virus (WNV). These samples were collected near Bishop, but in a different location than previous positive samples. Following swift and decisive action from OVMAP, mosquito populations in the area where positive samples were previously collected were too small to find the minimum sample size of 25 mosquitos required for testing.

New WNV positive samples being found in a different location from previous samples highlights the importance of protecting yourself from mosquito bites. With WNV positive mosquito samples being collected in 17 counties in California so far this year, totaling 230 WNV positive mosquito pool samples throughout California, no one should assume that mosquitos in their area are not carrying any disease just because testing has not discovered disease presence in your area. All residents should exercise caution when outdoors. Rob Miller, interim manager of OVMAP suggests the following protective measures:

Use mosquito repellent. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends using insect repellents containing DEET, Picaridin, or IR3535. Some oil of Lemon eucalyptus and Para-Menthane-Diol products provide similar protection.

Avoid outdoor activities if possible during dawn and dusk. This is especially important during the first two hours following sunset, when species that spread West Nile Virus are actively biting.

Wear long sleeves and pants. This provides additional protection when used in conjunction with insect repellent

About 20% of those who are bit by an infected mosquito will experience flu-like symptoms that last a few days and resolve on their own. Over-the-counter pain medications can help reduce fever and relieve some of the symptoms. About 1 out of every 150 people who contract West Nile Virus will develop more serious neurologic illness. If you develop symptoms of severe WNV illness, such as unusually severe headaches or confusion, seek medical attention immediately. Pregnant women and nursing mothers are encouraged to seek medical attention if they develop symptoms commonly associated with WNV.

To find more information on West Nile Virus, visit the Centers for Disease Control WNV page at https://www.cdc.gov/westnile/index.html.

Please report mosquito problems to the Owens Valley Mosquito Abatement Program by calling: (760) 873-7853.

*UPDATE*INYO COUNTY SHERIFF”S DEPARTMENT-ONE SUSPECT CAUGHT

Update: Wednesday, August 9th 7:45am

According to the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department, on Tuesday afternoon, August 8th, Emmett Davis was taken into custody for two active Felony Warrants. Davis was arrested on Brockman Lane in front of a residence; he was taken into custody without incident. Davis was located due to an anonymous tip received by the Sheriff’s Office.

Allen “Ziggy” Stone is still outstanding – there is a $500 award authorized for whoever can provide information that leads to his apprehension.

Public’s Assistance Requested

The Inyo County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in locating two individuals connected with two separate assaults that took place in Bishop on Tuesday August 1st.

At approximately 4:00pm on August 1st Inyo County Sheriff’s Dispatch received a report of a physical altercation and associated injury at a local business in Bishop on North Sierra Highway. Deputies responded and located an adult male with moderate injuries that were sustained as a result of being assaulted. The victim was transported to Northern Inyo Hospital for treatment.

Around the same time as the first assault, Inyo County Sheriff’s Dispatch received a report of a robbery and second assault on North Sierra Highway, in the area of Winuba Lane.  Deputies responded to the location and were told by the victim that two males assaulted him and stole his bicycle.

The investigation into both assaults determined that two individuals were the suspects in both cases: Allen “Ziggy” Stone a 27 year old male from Bishop, and Emmett Davis III a 24 year old male from Bishop.

The Inyo County Sheriff’s Department has obtained arrest warrants for both Stone and Davis, and are asking for the public’s assistance. If you have any information into the whereabouts of these suspects please contact the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office at 760-878-0383.
