Glen Campbell is going through a very difficult battle right now. He and his wife, Kim shared with People that he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He is doing his farewell tour this fall and want the fans to know in advance about his issues.
“Glen is still an awesome guitar player and singer,” says Kim. “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 diagnosed only six months ago, but it’s such a crazy disease, it can go really fast.
“I still love making music,” says Campbell. “And I still love performing for my fans. I’d like to thank them for sticking with me through thick and thin.”
I hope and pray that he can get through the tour. What a tragedy. I’ve seen this disease firsthand and it’s crushing to watch. Our thoughts and prayers are are with Glenn and Kim.
