Since his Alzheimer's disease diagnosis in 2011, Campbell has begun to wind it all down with a great goodbye tour and the album Ghost on the Canvas.
The Rhinestone Cowboy's last single, "A Better Place," portrays an initially defiant voice, one that eventually accepts the inevitability of where his life is headed. Campbell's tone remains as crystal as ever while a gently plucked acoustic leads a choir of chimes.
Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has been a huge fan of Campbell's since childhood. So when the video's directors, Kii Arens and Jason Trucco, asked the rocker to appear in the new clip, he jumped at the opportunity.
"I believe his exact words were, 'Do you want to play the bartender from 'The Shining' in the last Glen Campbell video?' and mine were, 'Of course I do!'" Homme recently told Paste Magazine.
The short clip features Campbell flipping through photos of his life, from family to the height of fame. Homme attends to the singer by playing a reticent yet heavenly barman. Check out the stirring visuals below.
