Glen is in the final stages of Alzheimer's and just said goodbye to his career by recording a last ballad. This ballad was already recorded January last year, and to be honest, what a fine piece of music it is. A man who is aware of his fate and gives a last salute to his family. Campbell has been moved to 24-hour care, as his doctors have determined that he is in the sixth stage of Alzheimer’s (‘severe cognitive decline”).


Here's the chorus.

'You're the last person I will love.
You're the last place I will recall.
But best of all, I'm not gonna miss you',


Moving stuff.


Reminds me of how Johnny Cash (who passes by after 27 seconds in this clip) bowed out with an amazing cover of NIN's "Hurt".

If he makes it to 2015 he's sure a candidate for the top 50 next year.

Poor Glen :( A beautiful swansong though!I hope he doesn`t last long for his sake.I lost two grandparents to Alzheimer`s and it is beyond indignity and although they can`t think they still feel a lot of pain.I can`t seem him making 2016 as he is evidently declining very fast.

Dear god, man.

Do you mind if I nick that when/if Stone Cold Steve Austin gets Alzheimers or dementia? Well I'm gonna anyway.....

...Mention the Game of the Thrones just once more and I'll more than likely kill you...

"Liberal" genius to-do list:

1. Call anti-Islam campaigners Nazis.

2. Label Winston Churchill, the guy without whom Europe would have become 100% Nazi, "outdated and imperialist" etc., and smirk as people get arrested for citing his views of Islam.

(3. Lurkingly and creepily use internet powers that were granted to you in more peaceful care-free times to arbitrarily censor and threaten people with opinions you don't like, much like a middle-of-the-night raid on opposition by 1930s Nazi street thugs)

Yeah, and he thinks he's in junior school!

He's "getting cards and letters from people he don't even know", meaning family and relatives.

Lol @ SC.... Bravo!
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?


So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Perhaps but I doubt it. I see 2017 as his calling card...and knowing he will receive only the finest health care, maybe 2018. Of course this assures his death by sundown.

Bollocks. Was on his fans forums this morning and now revisit them and 'nowt'.

Update about Glen's condition via his wife.  He's now officially stage 6 of 7, doesn't really know what's going on or understand anyone, mumbles short phrases.  Quite sad really.

"Late" stage 6, although it says stage 7 could be 1 to 2 years maybe.
