I love Glen Campbell! I love his voice and I love to hear him play the guitar!

Rhinestone Cowboy and Alzheimer’s

In June 2011, Campbell announced he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease six months earlier.

Campbell went on a final “Goodbye Tour”, with three of his children joining him in his backup band; his last show was on November 30, 2012, in Napa, California. Campbell sang “Rhinestone Cowboy” as a goodbye at the 2012 Grammy Awards ceremony held on February 12, 2012.
