Glen Campbell is not taking his battle with Alzheimers disease lying down. He recently began preparing for an overseas tour later this summer and fall and told the Associated Press,
"I'm really not worried about anything," Campbell said. "You know those people who say, 'Oh, geez, I wonder what's going to happen tomorrow?' Tomorrow's cool. Just don't mess it up. It's just wonderful. I think where I am at right now in this universe, I wouldn't want to be anything else than what I am."
One of the most successful singer-songwriters in country and pop music is Jimmy Webb. If you're familiar with Glen Campbell's hits, you know Jimmy Webb's songwriting talents, songs such as "Galveston" to "By The Time I Get To Phoenix". Today Jimmy Webb celebrates his 65th birthday.
When Glen Campbell revealed he had been diagnosed with Alzheimers Disease I don't think anyone--including me--knew what to expect when he took to the stage to perform. Happily, according to AP, his first post announcement show at the IP Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi was a resounding success!
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 Campbell has announced a tour date at the Seneca Allegany Casino in Salamanca on April 30. It's Glen's only scheduled stop in the Northeast this year and part of a slate of entertainment at the Southern Tier casino that also includes Kansas and comedian Ron White.
