Glen Campbell, the legendary singer who defied genre by fusing country and pop sounds on hits such as "Rhinestone Cowboy” and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix” in the Sixties, died following a long battle with Alzheimer's disease on August 8th. He was 81.
"He had a beautiful singing voice," Bruce Springsteen said in 2014. "Pure tone. And it was never fancy. Wasn't singing all over the place. It was simple on the surface but there was a world of emotion underneath."
