"The Rhinestone Cowboy"
This is just heartbreaking! This song was recorded in January, 2013 with music by his kids and a teleprompter to help him with the words. About 6 months ago he was admitted to an Alzheimer's special care facility in Nashville.
when a legendary musician finds he has Alzheimer's -- his poignant last song
"Not Going to Miss You"
This is so sad...
Wanna laugh? Eons ago, in the dark ages, before CD's and DVD's ~ I was married and living in Amarillo. A dear friend lived in the next block from us and we both worked for First Federal Savings & Loan. My ex bought a new car that had...wait for it!...an 8 track tape player! LOL Most young people have no idea what that is. :) Anyway, Gale and I would go to lunch in my car...get something quick to eat and just drive around listening to Glen Campbell's tapes! We were both in "lust" with him. At one point, he came to Amarillo to perform and played golf with Gale's husband. We begged & pleaded for him to take us but no, it was a "guy" thing. :) Anyway, I think Glen has had a great singing career and made a positive impact on many lives. My heart goes out to his wife and family.
