music news 27/07/2017

Glen Campbell first became a well known name in the sixties after his extraordinary guitar playing quickly made him a star.

Now his guitar once again takes centre stage in the music video for 'Adios', the title track of Campbell's farewell LP, written by Jimmy Webb.

The video combines old photos and video footage and includes appearances from several members of Campbell's family telling the story of the guitar's final journey from Nashville to California.

My father's music has touched so many people's lives so I hope that this video will resonate with a lot of people," Ashley Campbell says in a statement. "Music moves through us all in different ways, lighting a fire in each of us. That fire will always be burning as music keeps moving and as each of us continues to pass the torch."

81 year old Campbell is in the final stages of Alzheimers disease, receiving care in Nashville, where he is surrounded by his family.
