By David Wild : “Like a lot of people around the world, I have been listening to and loving the extraordinary music of Glen Campbell all of my life. Yet it was only this week that I could emotionally bring myself to see “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me,” the very beautiful, very musical and even more moving documentary directed by James Keach that quite rightly received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song….
Like the vast majority of us, Glen Campbell has not lived a perfect life, but through it all, this extraordinary musical talent has brought great beauty and soul to our lives thanks to his singular skills as a guitarist, singer, actor and entertainer. To this day, I regularly listen to Glen Campbell’s early work with Jimmy Webb, as well as his recent recordings with producer and songwriter Julian Raymond.
Yet this is not a “Behind The Music” look at any of that, but instead, a look at how one man has said goodbye to public life with great love, strength and redemption with the help of those who love him the most — his family.”
