Ran away from home when I was seventeen
To be with you on the California coast
Drinking margaritas all night in the old cantina
Out on the California coast

Don't think that I'm ungrateful
And don't look so morose
Adios, adios

We never really made it baby
But we came pretty close
Adios, adios

Going up north where the hills are winter green
I got to leave you on the California coast
Going where the water's clear and the air is cleaner
Than the California Coast

Our dreams of endless summers
Were just too grandiose
Adios, adios

And I'll miss the blood red sunset
But I'll miss you the most
Adios, adios


Adios, adios
Adios, adios

 

His final song.

He was a music legend and will be sadly missed :(

This made me think he was dead for a straight minute.

The Glen Campbell signature guitar is being re-released "in cooperation with the Campbell Family":

It does appear as if the family is in a hurry to squeeze out some more money before he goes. Things are coming to an end?

Must be the reason why one of his songs is on the 2nd Guardian's soundtrack...

Update from his daughter-

http://www.rollingstone.com/country/news/glen-campbells-daughter-gives-alzheimers-update-w485150

 

Quote

"He doesn't really use language much anymore, but we look on the bright side [because] in these late stages of Alzheimer's, it could be very bad," she says. "It could be confusion and anger a lot of the time, which is the case for a lot of people I've seen. But for him he's just happy every day, smiles, he enjoys life and he enjoys being around people – and he loves a good piece of cake."

He sounds like a goner to me, definitely a hit for this year.

His daughter gave a short update a day ago, she says that he's happy (which means that they gave up on him), something similar happened with Ali last year (his daughter said he'll live and he's happy) and he died maybe 2-3 months later.

He's not going any time soon. If he's positive and can still breathe without difficulty he will probably go on for 1-2 years. But for fun, March 3, 2018.

People with dementia get angry because they KNOW what they used to know but forgot it. Apparently, he has already declined more, and is now back at child or even baby stage.

Campbell's daughter is apparently scheduled to appear on BBC Breakfast just after 9 am if anyone's up and around for that.

Never heard of Adious. Is that the new album by Justin Bieber? 

Adios, on the other hand, is being released today.

I am going to ask nicely STOP TALKING TO ME. All you fucking do is undermine me at every opportunity. Go be a prick to someone else.
