Glen Campbell is not just another pop celebrity, though that’s what he’s best known for. He happens to be a great, great guitar player. I’ve heard him play. Anyway, the news came out awhile ago that he has Alzheimer’s. What I didn’t know is that he is still giving concerts!
Here is a link to a review of one of those concerts, which sounds quite amazing. It also includes a priceless quotation:
“I have Alzheimer’s?” he asks Kim, 53, his wife of 29 years… “Well, doggone … what’s that?” Kim gently reminds him that it’s the reason he’s been having trouble remembering things, but Campbell prefers a different explanation…. “God just cleared a lot of things out… It was crowded up there. I’ve been trying to get rid of that crap for years.”
