    Glen Campbell was always special in our family. My mom loved his album “Gentle On My Mind” and I became a fan all over again. As a collector of vintage stereo equipment, it is great to hear Glen on some of the great old 8 track tapes that I have been able to acquire. He is a very talented singer and musician. This new song is amazing for it incorporates so many of the special traits that made his songs beautiful. The strings along with his guitar and band never falls short of a beautiful song.
    I am so sad that this great talent will have to move on and deal with his illness, but one thing is certain, and that is this song is a wonderful tribute as to how talented he is. He will be in our prayers and I hope that God will bless him for all of the wonderful songs he has blessed this earth with!
    What a wonderful gift to give all of his fans – “GHOST ON THE CANVAS” is one of his greatest songs ever!

    I’m so very sorry and saddened to just learn of Glen’s illness and his brave
    battle and even bigger one ahead. I’ve been a huge fan of Mr. Campbell for well
    over 40+ years. I was only about 8 years old when I first heard Glen performing
    “By The Time I Get To Phoenix” as a guest one night; I was sound asleep but the
    song was so beautiful somehow subconsciously I was awakened. The very next day I
    pleaded with my parents to buy me the single, which they did, loving the song as
    well. I think I wore the single out but I still have it. Later I’d be
    entertained for several years by his many other hits as well as my family and I
    enjoyed watching his TV shows and guest appearances. My dad was a guitar player
    and highly respected Glen’s playing and would often play along with him. I have
    only fond memories, love and enormous respect for Glen. I truly hope the best
    for him and he’s comforted and cared for in the best possible way. I sure would
    have loved seeing him and I’ve always wanted to but was never quite that
    fortunate. His music and legacy will always live on as one of music’s most
    gifted talents and personally hold a special place in my heart. My very, very
    best thoughts and prayers from a very appreciative fan! My life was enhanced
    having his music as a part of it.

    I was a Glen fanatic by the time I was 3yrs old (1968). Played his records & knew every word. Pretty refined taste at that age I would like to think. “Ghost On The Canvas” is so amazing but it’s so bittersweet that I find myself in tears at times listening to it. I’ve turned my Laotian husband onto Glen’s music & he is definately enjoying it too. We have tickets for his show Apr. 29th in Wichita, Ks. I’m severely disablled at this point in my life & mostly housebound but I know to see Glen in concert I’ll surely not notice any pain at all! Glen my life will be complete seeing you on your tour. As you said in the cut of “Friends; YOU are a gift from the loving God” and I am so truly thankful & many others feel the same. Thank you so very very much sharing yourself & your family with all the nobody’s like me. God bless you.

    I have always liked Glen´s voice and music, but I must admit I´m “only” 41. So it is just unbelievable how long is his story. All the best and thank you.

    Because of Glen Campbell, I learned how to play the guitar. I’ve been at it for 43 years now. I’ve never come close to what he does. But I owe a lifetime of joy to the man who made me want to play.

    Dear Glen, I am from the Netherlands and I bought your first LP 35 years ago. I always loved your songs. I am a therapist working in the addiction care and I know about your problems. I do admire you for your quality! But in my opinion your best song in your carreer is ” a better place” I can play it again and again. It is very very impressing!!

    Mr. Campbell,
    Thank you for a memorable performance this evening at the Kent Stage.
    How gratifying it is to see and hear your musical legacy being carried on through your children.

    The set list was a great mix of so many favorites, and beautiful new favorites from Ghost On The Canvas.
    We couldn’t pop the CD into the player fast enough for the drive home.

    Congratulations on the much deserved honors at the Grammys next month

    I saw Glen last night here in Ann Arbor….what a moving experience! Being a musician myself, it was humbling to be in the presence of a living legend, and a true blessing to see Glen live with his very talented family and friends! If you have a chance to see him, do it! Don’t miss it, cuz this may well be your last chance to see Glen perform the masterpieces of Jimmy Webb, John Hartford, Alan Toussaint, et al…

It really kept me going and I thank you for the great years of awesome music and great playing. Live life, love it, and keep the family close. You won’t be forgotton. God Bless

    Hi Mr Campbell. I have listened to your music since my father introduced me to you when I was about 12 years of age back in Queensland Australia. I cannot get Ghost on the Canvas out of my head since I heard it this morning what a great song and a great choice for you to have recorded it. It inspires me so much and it makes me feel very proud and at the same time very sad, but you are a very strong human being and a modest one at that, a brilliant singer and there is no word that exists to me that can describe your guitar picking. You are a Legend god bless.

    I saw you at the Ryman in Nashville on 1/3/12. Afterward, I immediately downloaded your new album and I have cried my eyes out for 2 days. “It’s Your Amazing Grace”… wow. I sang BGVs on “Greatest Love Of All” back in 1992, and count it as one of my highest honors. You are an anointed man of God who has lived life to its fullest — good & bad — and been an inspiration for us all. When I was a little girl, I used to sing “Honey Come Back” to my Daddy when he would leave for weeks on end. I can’t begin to express how much YOU have meant to me. Thank you, Glen, for it all….. May God continue to bless you through this season of your life. Much love….. Ginger from Nashville

    I have listened to this disc a dozen times since it arrived. Brilliant, soulful work by a fantastic entertainer. Painful to know that it is your last studio work, Glen. Ghost on the Canvas is a fitting end to a body of work that has been simply wonderful. May God Bless and Keep You near Him always.

    Looking forward to the Milwaukee Show next month. Many of the people Glen worked with played here through the years as well. He’s one of the last from that era of Charismatic Entertainers whose songs will be around forever. John Lombard, Milwaukee,Wisconsin

    Why is the show on Sunday Jan 29 at the Kent Stage, kent Ohio not listed here when I have tickets in hand? It would make sense that you would promote your own shows….

    Great video and song. I salute Glen for a great career. He has ups and downs in his life but is showing the best of his life now.

  35. 10 November 11, 8:01pm

    AMAZING!! Glen’s done an amazing job on GOTC as a full album. Sad that its billed as “final”, but you never know, maybe a single might come out providing he still can. Seeing him in concert, he can still sing and play, so here’s to hope!! Keep it up Glen, you’re doing FANTASTIC!! Hope to see you in Canada again soon 🙂

  36. 09 November 11, 6:49am

    Glenn Campbell has always been a musicial backdrop in my life. Everyone eventually must face their own mortality. Glenn can be justly proud in the way he is facing his. You have class, Glenn!

    My mother-in-law, Valerie Taylor and her friend Eva went to see Glen at Cliffs Pavilion in Southend-on-Sea on the 5th November and managed to meet Glen Cambell in private at the interval and his close friend, Stephen, took a video and photos of the meeting but my mother-in-law never left any contact details for Stephen to pass the photos onto. She has contacted the Cliffs Pavilion but they have no contact details for Glen or Stephen.

    My mother-in-law is blind and would really appreciate a copy of the photos to share her special moment with her family so I would be grateful if you could pass my details onto Glen Cambell and his close friend Stephen so they can forward any photos onto me.

    Best Regards

    I truly do hope you read my post or at least hear of it. I am not a professional musician by any stretch, but I do own four guitars and have been playing for almost forty years now in no small part because of you.You were one of my favorite and most prominent influences in the love of the instrument. Thank you for the music Glen, thank you for sharing your gift with us all. God bless you.
