Glen Campbell To Spend Birthday On Capitol Hill
Glen Campbell’s, who’s been suffering with Alzheimer’s disease, has suspended his touring. Instead, the Rhinestone Cowboy will spend his 77th birthday in Washington as an advocate for Alzheimer’s research. The trip will include a fundraising dinner for the Alzheimer’s Association and a visit to Capitol Hill, where he’ll visit the Senate. Alzheimer’s has robbed Campbell of many of his best memories. Campbell will release a new album, “See You There,” on July 30. It’s a reimagining of some of his most popular songs. With new versions of his biggest hits like “Wichita Lineman,” ”By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” ”Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Hey Little One.” Campbell’s wife Kim, says her husband still occasionally lays down vocal tracks in the studio but the disease has progressed too far to allow him to continue touring, something the family and Campbell’s management left open when he wrapped up his successful goodbye world tour last year.
