The Rhinestone Cowboy, Glen Campbell, announced he has Alzheimer's disease but is going to go out on the road one last time to say goodbye to fans. It is always sad to see something like this. It is also hard to believe the guy is 75 years old. He was pretty old when Rhinestone Cowboy actually was a hit because that was like in the 1970's so he must have been almost 40. I know he had some hits for 20 years before that, but that is when he got his nickname.
For those of you who are younger and have no idea who Glen Campbell is, let me tell you, this guy was a walking tabloid when he was younger. He divorced his first wife and then started sleeping with the wife of another famous country singer. Oh, he was almost 50 when he started hooking up with Tanya Tucker. She was 21. I have always suspected he may have hooked up with her well before she was 21, but he would have been married at the time to the woman he stole from the other country singer. He has done his share of drugs, been arrested for DUI, assaulting police and the lot, but even with that and the random hookups, he keeps winning those Christian Dove Awards. This guy has had a career and it will be sad to see him say goodbye.
