Exclusive: Glen Campbell Gets Ready To Return To The Stage In Clip From Oscar Nominated Documentary 'I'll Be Me'

A legendary musician, songwriter and performer, Glen Campbell cut his teeth as part of the iconic studio session players The Wrecking Crew, laying down the backing tracks for artists like Bobby Darin, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Merle Haggard, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, the Beach Boys and Phil Spector. When it came time to record his own music in the mid ’60s, he cut songs like Jimmy Webb‘s “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston” and later “Rhinestone Cowboy.” However, in 2011 it was revealed that Campbell was suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. He went on out on tour one more time to say goodbye to his fans.
