He might have Alzheimer's, but at least he doesn't have Alzheimer's.

Kim: I actually think he is better than he was a year ago. I think that being out and performing all the time has something to do with it. Music seems to be really good therapy for him. I don't know if it is the vibrations. Maybe they stimulate the brain. Of course he is on some medications today that I think have been helping, too.

And the Wichita lineman clears his gun and dreams of a rhinestone cowboy who made little green apples on those Southern nights.

He's stuck inside the Kodak theater with the Branson blues again.

How about how to choke a biatch? Did he talk about that?

By the time he gets to Phoenix, he'll have forgotten he's in Arizona.

Performing is a form of meditation. Could be something to it.

My favorite song that he did was "My World Fell Down"

I saw him in concert recently. He sang "Wichita Lineman" eighteen times...

Not so csb time...

About 5 years ago I worked on a tv show he did. I was sitting there in the bay digitizing all of the footage and got down to the interviews. They would ask him questions - to which some of them he answered fine. Others he would sit there, get a confused look on his face and say "y'know... I just don't remember. It's been so long ago."

I figure it was probably starting way back then. None of us recognized it at the time.

He came in for an interview 6 or 7 months ago with his wife. He did fair... but his wife would definitely jump in and steer the questions to remind him. Don't get me wrong... they were both great, and by the time you see the edited piece you won't know. But I found it just a tad sad.

I'll be curious how well he will doing by the end of this year. Maybe this farewell tour will keep his mind as fresh as it can be.

Very nice tribute to him on the Grammys last night, and a good feature on CBS Sunday Morning as well.

I forgot how many of his songs I knew just from hearing them as a kid. I'll have to pick up some of his greatest hits.

Campbell was a phenomenal guitarist and part of "The Wrecking Crew" (new window), a group of elite studio guys in the 1960s that included Barney Kessel, James Burton, Jim Horn, Leon Russell, Dr. John, Max Bennett, Hal Blaine, Jim Gordon and others.

Alzheimer's is a biatch. I wish him well.

Looks like it's time for him to get off the stage or just shut up!

srsly- he was my favorite singer when i was growing up in the 70's. rhinestone and gentle on my mind were my favorite songs. it was painful in a way to watch him perform at the grammy's. alzheimers sucks.

/his daughter is smokin
//my wife thought it was taylor swift for a moment
///one of them plays a real banjo, not a 'six string' banjo

Only if he's especially lucky, considering he lives in Scottsdale.

//or was it Paradise Valley?

You son of a biatch!!!!!

I have a lot more sympathy for him dealing with Alzheimer's than for Whiteny getting farked up and drowning in her bath tub.
