Q: Will Glen Camp­bell be tour­ing or record­ing again?

Los Angeles Times - - PERSONALITY -

—Kathy Al­bert, Hemp­stead, N.Y.

A: Un­for­tu­nately, no. The five-time Grammy-win­ning singer of “Gen­tle on My Mind,” “South­ern Nights” and “Rhine­stone Cow­boy,” 79, di­ag­nosed with Alzheimer’s dis­ease in 2011, now lives in a mem­ory-care fa­cil­ity in Nashville, Tenn., and has lost the abil­ity to carry on a con­ver­sa­tion. But he can still say, “I love you,” says his wife of nearly 33 years, Kim. His strug­gle with the dis­ease was chron­i­cled in an ac­claimed 2014 doc­u­men­tary, Glen Camp­bell: I’ll Be Me, which will make its world­wide tele­vi­sion pre­miere tonight on CNN.
