Glen Campbell’s Bid Farewell In, “A Better Place” Video With Josh Homme
Songwriter Glen Campbell began to wind down his emotional 2011-12 following his Ghost On A Canvas album earlier this week with his final music video: A Better Place: The Life and Times Of Glen Campbell. Campbell, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in early 2011, recorded the tremendous album as his last studio record. The 76-year-old Campbell also made an appearance at the Grammy’s earlier this year with a powerful rendition of “Rhinestone Cowboy” while on his Goodbye Tour.
The film, which also stars Queens of the Stone Age/Them Crooked Vultures front man Josh Homme, follows Campbell as he walks to a dressing room in a dark night club, where a respectful Homme presents him with a photo album of that captures different phases of the singer/actor’s incredible life. “A Better Place” concludes with a heartfelt message from Campbell to his fans and his wife of 30 years, Kim Woolen capturing his intent to make Ghost On A Canvas his final piece of music.
Campbell is slated to play his final Los Angeles show on June 24 at the Hollywood Bowl and will wrap his lengthy tour with a stint of Australian shows in August.
