To those of you who can't think of Glen Campbell without humming a few bars of his classic 1968 songs Wichita Lineman or Gentle on My Mind,here's some sad news.
The country singer/actor, 75, and his wife, Kim, tell People magazine that Campbell has Alzheimer's disease.
They have decided to go public with Campbell's health news diagnosis 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, reports People.
"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?' "
