    I remember my mom and dad listening to him. Very sad. Such a cruel disease.

    ScruffyBunny saidI remember my mom and dad listening to him. Very sad. Such a cruel disease.

    Yes, my ex-mother-in-law-died of it, and my ex-BF's father. In the latter case, his wife tried to keep caring for him at home, long after he should have gone into a care facility. A losing battle, and finally she had to admit that he needed specialty 24/7 care she couldn't provide.

    In the former situation, the husband was the problem, didn't want to be left alone, and his wife was fairly normal during the day. But at night she'd wander out of the house, each time it took the police to find her in her nightclothes, lost on the streets.

    But the courts wouldn't act without his agreement or hers. She'd be medically evaluated, but it was during the day, when she was better. And her husband wouldn't cooperate, himself already half-senile.

    Finally her 2 daughters had to hire lawyers to force the issue, and get a court order for her involuntary admission to an Alzheimer's facility. And that's where she died, barely a year later. A tough thing for families to deal with, as was apparently the case with the Glen Campbell family.

    And if guys here don't know who Glen Campbell is, in a few decades other guys will be going: "Elton WHO? Madonna WHO?" "Cher... is that like a French word or something?"

    All fame is fleeting, especially in the entertainment industry.

    awww I used to watch the Glen Campbell Show, he was actually an excellent guitar player and a nice guy seemingly. I met him once at Les Paul's house in Mahwah, NJ on Deerhaven Road.

    I had a friend named Johnnie Esak who was this partially blind electrono-wiz who used to make stuff with Les Paul. One day Les Paul's cellar got flooded and we helped him clean up and Glen Campbell was there! I was maybe 17.
