There's really only two words to describe Glen Campbell: Music Legend. Last night, I had the privilege to meet him upon his arrival in St. Louis. He was warm and gracious as he signed autographs and posed for photographs for all who asked.
Campbell is kicking off his Goodbye Tour tonight at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO. In June, he announced he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. This is his farewell tour before retiring. USA Today published this great story just a couple of weeks ago.
Campbell's list of accomplishments is astonishing. In addition to his acting, his 27 top ten hits and his 45 million albums sold, he also played guitar on the original recordings of such music classics as Frank Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night," Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas," The Monkees "I'm a Believer," Simon and Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence," and The Beach Boy's "Good Vibrations."
Best of all, I'll be in the audience at tonight's show.
