Glen Campbell explains how he wants to be remembered in heartbreaking inter


It’s a question every reporter wants to ask, but few do. It’s that question that makes someone face his inevitable destiny head on and a question that makes even the biggest artists think long and hard about before they attempt to answer.

In an interview by WGN’s Dean Richards, country music legend Glen Campbell was faced with that crucial question – how do you want to be remembered?

“[I want to be remembered] for my guitar playing and singing,” Glen told Dean five years before his death and months before Alzheimer’s disease would wreak havoc on his memory. “That’s what I really enjoyed doing. I carried my guitareverywhere I would go as a kid – the guitar my daddy bought me.”

Glen then paused for a moment, as the brevity of the question began to hit him. “I try to live my life like my dad did,” he continued. “You don’t lie, you don’t cheat, you don’t steal – that will ruin you more than anything. Open your life up and don’t do any of that B.S., because it haunts you.”

Words well said, Glen.
