Goodbye, Glen Campbell
By now you've heard of the passing, on Tuesday, of singer and guitarist, Glen Campbell. At 81, Campbell had a long, successful career as a musician.
I'm also sure you're aware that Campbell had been stricken with Alzheimer's Disease, but did you know that he had taken part in a film immediately following his diagnosis that followed him on his "goodbye tour." It was a brave act to subject himself to the prospect of someone filming his decline. Yet, he toured for a year and a half and his appearance in the film brought even more awareness to the disease that seems to be afflicting more and more of our population.
The film is Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me and it is in our DVD collection [DVD 782.42 GLE].
