I was reading yesterday that Glen Campbell has Alzheimer's and was recently moved into home where he can be cared for. I didn't know he was ill. Sad indeed. Ive always liked Glen Campbell as I grew up listening to him. My mother was a big fan. So I will just leave this here, my favourite GC song, Galveston. Sorry cant embed from here.

A shame to read that. Always liked him and the way he sang, and 'Galveston' has also been a favorite of mine.

He sang some good, memorable tunes ('Galveston' being one of them) and was a very good performer.
Personally, I am more appreciative of his talent as a guitarist.

I'd read about his Alzheimer's also....pretty sad.

Carry on....

Great song. Also love "Gentle on My Mind" & "By the Time I Get To Phoenix."

He was on an awards show bout a year ago and sang.It was difficult to watch.

He did a lot of studio work on 12-string guitar, he was in great demand prior to his career taking off. I had one of his early albums as a kid, great stuff. I had heard about his farewell tour last year and he had trouble remembering lyrics. A few years back he had a DUI, wonder if his condition had something to do with the behavior. A sad end for someone so talented and loved by many.

Carry on....Yes, a lot of people don't realize how talented he was as a guitarist.

A lot of people also don't realize he was actually a Beach Boy for a brief stint in the 60's. Very versatile talented artist.

I did not know that.

I knew he was failing, that is one awful disease. :(

His reputation suffered here locally after his DUI.

Frnkd....

Great vids.

Shvt....'600 cuts' on various studio musician projects from Frankie to the Monkees.
Astounding body of work that I'd proud to be a part of.

For what little it's worth I'll throw some green your way for the cool tribute vid.

EDIT: Hells bells....I lied....I'm on spread with you. You must have said something correct in the past. :)

Carry on....

Yeah, this is really sad. He actually did a sort of "Farewell Before I Forget" tour a couple years ago, culiminating with him singing at the awards show. It was very bittersweet to watch. His son and daughter helped him a lot.

So long and Godspeed, Rhinestone Cowboy.

Reviving old-ish thread :rolleyes:

Another fave GC track is his version of the Joe South song "Rose Garden" of course it was made famous by Lynn Anderson but as it was written from a guy's perspective it all fits better together when GC performs it. :)

Yeah, I posted it elsewhere, but my parents loved Glen Campbell and, consequently, so did I. "Rhinestone Cowboy" was my favorite as a little kid, and I still have the 45 my parents bought me.

Someone might have mentioned it, but awhile back he was on some show where he was being recognized. Alzheimer's was clearly already taking its toll. He looked lost. Someone handed him a guitar and he looked like he'd been handed a hockey stick. So sad. It's a brutal, terrible, unforgiving disease.

Goodbye sir. And thank you.
