Days After Glen Campbell’s Death, Rock Legend Breaks Silence On His Christian Faith

True friendship is a gift that lasts a lifetime, and it’s sad to see one break up.

Christianity is a fate known to unite people across the globe, and it was no other case with this pair of artists.

We bring you the story of Alice Cooper and his late friend Glen Campbell.

One was a rocker, the other a country singer. But both of them went through the same path of life, had similar obstacles and overcame them together. As Western Journalism reports, the key to their win was faith in God, and it’s something they never lost.

Earlier this week, Campbell died of Alzheimer’s disease, but his friend Cooper has settled with the news as he believes he ‘passed through the Pearly Gates’. Here’s what he had to say:

“Glen and I are of the same faith. We’re both Christians, and I know where he is now. And I know that he’s in the perfect place. Glen was one of the most unique guys. You think of Glen — country. Alice Cooper — rock ‘n’ roll. We couldn’t have been closer.”

Spending their life in Phoenix – Arizona, they didn’t have a childhood filled with ‘sunshine and rainbows’ as drug and alcohol addiction was a sight from their teenage years. It’s something they overcame together, as Cooper says, becoming Christian:

“He navigated through that, I navigated through that, we both came out the other end with great families, we both came out sober, we both became Christian, we both understood where we were. And that’s what we had in common. We were survivors of that world, and we both moved to Phoenix to get away from that world.”

Here is a video concerning the pair:

Cooper had nothing but great words to say about his late fellow, speaking about his musical talent but also the performances he had:

“He was one of the premier guitar players in both rock and country,” Cooper told KSAZ. “A lot of people don’t know this, but I mean, the respect he had in the rock ‘n’ roll world. People like Eddie Van Halen one time said, ‘Can you get me a guitar lesson with Glen?’ And most rockers would go, ‘What?’ That’s the kind of guitar player he was. He was considered one of the five best guitar players out there.”

He continued speaking, saying:

“[Campbell] could go hang out with the Rat Pack, or he could hang out with Donnie and Marie [Osmond], or he could hang out with the Beatles or anybody. He was in that middle. He was just sort of the all-purpose, good-looking kid that could do anything. He was the golden boy. And yet he and I were like this when it came to a sense of humor, when it came to golf, when it came to music.”

It’s this kind of stories that puts tears in your eyes. Their story is a real inspiration for everyone that has gone through a hard time in life. Just find a friend, someone who understands you, and together you can fight anything. Even just the faith in God is sometimes enough.
