Default Glen Campbell

Just saw this link on FB and thought some might be interested. Apparently Glen Campbell has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. Very sad.

He's in his 70s so it isn't that surprising.

He did a couple of my favourite records of all time - Galveston, Wichita Lineman & Rhinestone Cowboy to name just three. I think when I first heard Galveston it started my lifelong fascination with songs about places.

I agree with you there FP, Galveston is also one of my favourites - but I prefer to remember him singing it like this


another one I used to really love

How sad. Great choices there FP.

I love this version of Wichita Lineman with Keith Urban. (Love the way they both make mistakes and yet keep on going with a laugh. )

So sorry to hear this. Alzheimer's is a terrible, terrible disease.

I always have to have my hanky ready when Glen sings 'And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time' in 'Witchita lineman'.
Even 33 years after its release.

Awww. I've been a Glen Campbell fan since "Homeward Bound" was televised on the Ed Sullivan Show!
