During The Times' interview with Glen Campbell about his new album, “Ghost on the Canvas,” which comes out Aug. 30, he discussed the Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis he got earlier this year and the decision that he and his wife, Kim, made to go public in June.

“I’m fine,” the 75-year-old singer and guitarist said during our chat in the kitchen of his home in Malibu. “It’s just sometimes days are better than other ones. But that’s going on your whole life. Well, not your whole life.” Then he pulled out a quip: “One guys asks another, ‘You lived around here your whole life?’ The other guy says, ‘Not yet!’ ”


The fact that entertaining has been such an integral part of Campbell’s life for so many decades is part of what prompted the “Rhinestone Cowboy” singer, with the backing of his family and his doctor, to choose to continue public performances rather than pull back as a result of his medical condition

    Alzheimer's Disease is a horrible disease. So hard on the care taker. I am glad he has had a good life. Some people are diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease at a much younger age.

    So sad to see anyone develop Alzheimer's. Hopefully his music will be very theraputic and he will have his mental function for a good while!

    That's too bad. Glen lived across the street from us in North Hollywood in the early 60's when he was with The Beach Boys.
