Alzheimer's-Stricken Glen Campbell Likely Won't Perform Again

Wednesday, 14 May 2014 10:15 AM

Glen Campbell can no longer do what's been second nature for him for most of his life — perform — because the progression of his Alzheimer's disease has made it impossible, People reports.

When asked if the country great would ever play for an audience again, his wife, Kim Woolen, 55, said it's unlikely.

"He can't even tune a guitar now. If I tune one and hand it to him he can still play, [but] not like he used to," Woolen told People at the Open Hearts Foundation's 4th Annual Gala in Malibu on Saturday. She added that he can still "play a couple licks here and there, and he finds joy in that."

Campbell, 78, was moved into an Alzheimer's facility near his Nashville home last month. He reportedly spends his days looking at pictures and chatting with Woolen, who visits him "every single day for hours."
