    He is still a great artist and I am pleased that he still wants to go on stage and perform his music, which I like - one of the greats in music and I hope the audiences really get behind him and support him throughout his tours.

    I am also glad he and his family have been open about this as he is high profile and it will help others to open talk about this condition.

    Sylvia, hello
    I totally agree, I thought it was so positive that they have announced his Alzheimer's and that he is going to carry on performing. His wife sounded so caring when she said:

    "Kim Campbell said if her husband "flubs a lyric or gets confused on stage", she wanted fans to know the reason." quote from BBC website.

    Sonia, yes, another family ...
    With best wishes from Jo

    Glen Campbell, through his music has given so much to others. I do hope that Glen and his family get lots of support.
