groppet: Alzhimers is one of the resons why when I hit 60 I am going to take up smoking. I wil try and die of lung cancer before my mind goes.
markie_farkie: He'll spend his remaining days singing Gentle on What's Left of My Mind..
Spanky McStupid: If you get to hell before me, save me a seat. That was genius!
Clash City Farker: He keeps getting cards and letters from people he doesn't even know.
Infobahn: I knew the man and was friends with one of his kids back in the late 70s and early 80s. Nice man. Drugged up man, but nice.A few years back one of the Paradise Valley (AZ) police speed cameras caught Charles Barkley driving Glenn Campbell and Alice Cooper to a round of golf. I would have loved to round out that foursome.

Guuberre: Here's him in better days: Classical Gas
uknowzit: played on more top 10 hits then pretty much anyone in the world. LA studio musician extrodanaire.
ClavellBCMI: Appropriate use of the Sad tag. I grew up listening to his stuff (born in 1961). He was a regular fixture of the popular music scene when I was growing up, so I had no choice but to hear his stuff, and a fair amount of it actually holds up well (not sure how well "Rhinestone Cowboy" holds up, though). And he was one hell of a musician (him and Buck Owens both).
Smeggy Smurf: Sad to see a legend fade away
douchebag/hater: Sad, sad, sad all the way around.One of the few people/bands that I missed seeing perform live. He even played at a local county fair 2-3 years back on his farewell tour but I was too poor to go.
johnny queso: Saw him play at the Hollywood bowl last year. Between every song he seemed surprised anew to see everyone sitting there watching him. His kids/band would keep him focused. As soon as the songs kicked in the dude was on it like no one's business. Plays the shiat out of a guitar. It was interesting to watch.
