Glen Campbell…What can you say about him? He is An American Legend. A musician. An Icon. An Actor. And, a man that is dealing with the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
With the public announcement a few months ago that he is suffering from this he decided to embark on his Goodbye tour. You got to hand to it to him.

I think Ford stands for “Fluff only, Rock’s Denied”. If anyone can think of a better acronym, send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Evansville concert season is really sucking…Van Halen is one of the biggest shows this year to see. They should have named the Ford center the “Desert” since it lacks entertainment.
