I'll Be Me...a tribute

I was recently watching I'll Be Me, a movie special on CNN about Glen Campbell's life and his fight with Alzheimer's disease.

Those of you who are of the geezer generation will remember Glen from such hits as Rhinestone Cowboy, Wichita Lineman, Galveston and many, many more memorable pop-country hits.  You'll also remember him from his role in True Grit with John Wayne and may also know that he was a member of the Beach Boys for a time.

I'll Be Me documents Glen's private and musical life and more recently his final tour days; something he wanted to do until he wasn't able.  This is a very up close and personal look at a star entering the final chapter of his life as it draws to a close. Through it all, we realize that no matter the fame or fortune, Glen Campbell is a human and we can relate.

If you didn't see I'll Be Me, you can check out the trailer

In the video clip below, Shannon Campbell sings his father's final recording, I'm not going to miss you. Keep some Kleenex handy because it's a tearjerker.
