Glen Campbell Diagnosed With Alzheimer’s Disease
I’ve always been a big fan of Glen Cambell, and read this article about him being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. So sad I think. I’ve seen him in concert before…and it was awesome! Wishing all the best for him. Go see him if you haven’t yet, he is a wonderful!
The 75-year-old ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ singer and his wife, Kim, say they are going public with his disease now because “he’s hoping to say farewell with a final slate of live performances this fall – and they want his fans to be aware of the musician’s condition.”
“Glen is still an awesome guitar player and singer,” Kim told PEOPLE. “But if he flubs a lyric or gets confused on stage, I wouldn’t want people to think, ‘What’s the matter with him? Is he drunk?’”
Campbell was reportedly diagnosed with the disease six months ago.
