Interview with British punkrock icon Adam Ant.
Are there people from your peer group, or any of your idols, who you feel like maybe aren’t receiving the sort of credit they should be while they’re still living?

That’s quite a difficult question to answer. I mean, someone like Glen Campbell was always someone that was so consistent that you didn’t realize the body of work that he’d done. Same with Johnny Cash. When Johnny Cash passed, it was someone who had gone through so much, and they make films about them, and you discover just how great they were. It’s the longevity that they have, and the consistency that they have, and the originality that they maintain.

And here's a great write-up by David Paich of the band Toto who explains the role Glen played in the formation of Toto.

How do you know what to say about Glen? First of, I loved that man for 50 years. Thru all the good times and bad, I have always had Glen's music to fall back on. I still have his music, but seeing him sing on videos is very hard. Every concert that I attended just filled me with joy. Also thru my love for Glen, I have made new friends (Hi Ar!) who are now family makes me so blessed. Also I am so glad that I now have this forum where people will not judge you for your opinions(Thanks Dee!) I will miss him, but he will always be known as the "Rhinestone Cowboy" :cry:

Brownwood pastor speaks at Glen Campbell memorial
Brownwood Bulletin
August 26, 2017

Dr. Richard Jackson spoke at Glen Campbell's memorial service called “Remembering...A Celebration of the Life and Music” held in Nashville on August 24th. He has been a friend of the Campbells for 35 years and was their pastor for 12 years at North Phoenix Baptist Church, where Glen and Kim became members in 1981. He performed their marriage in 1982, and baptized Ashley, Cal and Shannon. Dr. Jackson beautifully describes Glen's faith in God:

Below is a photo I took of the liner notes written by Pastor Jackson for a promo of Glen's album, "No More Night". The Pastor's words are particularly appropriate now.

Glen Campbell Remembered By Family & Friends at Heartfelt Memorial
Billboard
by Tom Roland
August 24, 2017

Glen's memorial service was an invitation-only service limited to 300 guests and was not televised.
It surely befitted The Rhinestone Cowboy and the unforgettable person that was Glen Campbell:

Mike, thank you so much for posting about the BBC Radio programs, rebroadcasts and new tributes.
I thought I would post the link again because these broadcasts are available only for a limited time.
Who knew? Glen Campbell is one of Elaine Paige's favorite singers!

Below is the webpage listing the BBC programs. The video programs are not viewable in the U.S.
However, the radio programs are accessible.
This new show is a well-done composite: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b092n7rq" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
