Just over two months ago, legendary country singer Glen Campbellwent public with his ongoing struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.
At the time, Campbell, 75, revealed that in light of the diagnosis, he would “hang up his boots,” but prior to doing so he would give his fans one last album – “Ghost On A Canvas” – and then a “farewell” tour.
With the new album out – it hit shelves today (Aug. 30) – and Glen’s goodbye tour kicking in less than a month, the stage is all set for a fitting departure into the sunset, right?
Recently, the Rhinestone Cowboy hit maker told Britain’s Guardian magazine that his retirement from music may not be permanent.
In the exclusive interview, Campbell, whose prominent career spans more than 5 decades, talked about his childhood, his walk with God, his recent memory loss, and finally his latest album.
When asked if Ghost On A Canvas would be his last musical creation, Glen replied:
“Well, I dunno about that. If I ran into five or six good songs, I would make another. Yeah, I’m sure I will. I dunno. Let me see how old I am now? I’m 75. Yeah, yeah, 75.”
While the statement is by no means something to hang your hat on, it does give a glimmer of hope to those of us wanting just a little more Campbell.
Here’s to hoping.
