  1. Beautiful song, and I admire the irony in the lyrics. Alzheimer’s is such a terrible disease. He died exactly one year to the day after my father passed from the same disease.

  2. Great song. I have the Lenard Nimoy version of it.

    Put the rocks down, please.

    This is another great one of his –

    But the one that I most identify with him – probably because I heard it as a kid – is “Rhinestone Cowboy.”

  3. If you haven’t read it, check out the book <a href=""The Wrecking Crew" Glen Campbell is featured prominently in it.

    This is also good, there is some discussion of Christianity at a couple points.

  4. Hm, html didn’t work. I think I messed up a tag. Sorry.
