In case anyone hasn't heard, Glen Cambell has publically announced he has Alzheimer's.

Below is a nice video of his life and new album.

Thanks for posting the link- inspiring stuff. Got a song in the works as I write this, just a couple of lines, but hopefully it'll flesh out into something decent.

Take care,

You know, lots of people don't realize that Glen was actually one of the best guitarest in the world, huge session player, etc. He was such a famous singer that is often overlooked.

Good luck on the new song.

He was one of "The Wrecking Crew" studio musicians and played on countless sessions.

My father-in-law had AZ - it's a terrible disease.

My heart goes out to him as well, they say its as hard on the family than the individual. I was touched when I read that Glen was forgetting chords, etc. Just hard to believe.

But, lots of great memories with his music for sure.
