Glen Campbell

Country music legend Glen Campbell, known for hits like Rhinestone Cowboy and Gentle On My Mind, lives in Malibu with his wife of 30 years... Kim.

Their home in the hills overlooking the Pacific is close to the singer's local golf course, where he plays every day. After almost 30 years of marriage, Campbell's fourth wife has been by her husband's side during much of his hugely successful career. She has also endured some of the darker days caused by his Alzheimer's disease.

The 75-year-old singer is making final preparations for a farewell tour to say goodbye to his fans and release an album of new songs. Sitting in their living room, Kim helps to fill in some the gaps of her husband's failing short-term memory.

"I haven't been marred with this thing at all," says Glen. "I accept that I got, what's it called?" "Alzheimer's," says Kim Campbell. "Alzheimer's," Campbell repeats firmly. Full story on BBC News

We are so sorry to hear this about Glen... I loved him from the time I was in the 6th grade... He did have some addictions and wild girlfriends... But the world is slowly losing one of the most sparkling and talented musicians of all time. Our thoughts and prayers are with Glen and Kim...
