__________________ A TRIBUTE TO GLEN CAMPBELL __________________

The last song Glen Campbell recorded - I'm not gonna miss you (A sad poignant fact about Alzheimers)

Tonight on 'Prime Rocks' we watched a documentary about Glen Campbells struggle with Alzheimers disease as he toured for the last time. It was a moving tribute to his musical talent, his courage, humour and the love of his family and friends that surrounded him at this most difficult time.

Gentle On My Mind (Great Guitar Break)

What a talent... gone... :o(

Yes, sadly, another one of many singers who played the soundtracks of our youth - gone.

I've been singing Gentle on my Mind the past few days over and over. What a talent! The 2014 documentary, I'll be Me is well worth watching, a moving portrait of his courageous response to his Alzheimer's disease.

Dan, 'Gentle on my Mind' is a great song. I like the easy relentless pressure of the melody that drives the lyrics and carries the song all the way through to the end. Coupled with Glen Campbells guitar virtuosity and voice it's a classic.
