Ailing Glen Campbell Loses Voice


Glen Campbell

The veteran singer, who went public with his mental health battle in 2011, has entered the final phase of the disease and his wife Kim has revealed Glen is no longer able to verbally communicate.

In an interview with Tampa Bay, Florida, news station WTSP, Kim updated fans on her husband's condition, saying, "He's healthy, he's content. He's lost most of his ability to communicate verbally. He has severe aphasia (impairment of language), but he still understands the universal language of smiles and kisses, and he enjoys food."

Kim, who has been married to Glen for 33 years, admits that while the past few years have been difficult, she and her family are keeping a positive attitude by simply treasuring whatever time left they have with the beloved singer.

Ailing Glen Campbell Moved To New Care Facility


Glen Campbell

The veteran singer, who went public with his mental health battle in 2011, previously spent 18 months in a Nashville, Tennessee medical centre after Kim, his wife of 33 years, decided it was time to seek professional help for her confused husband.

She brought Glen home in July (15) with the intention of becoming his full-time carer again, but the responsibility was too much for her to handle, and she has since decided to turn to medics once more.

"I always wanted to bring him home and give it another try because I miss him so terribly," Kim Campbell explains, "(but) it was just more than I could handle. He's the sweetest person in the world, but he becomes combative when you try to change his clothes or bathe him. It really wasn't the best situation."

Glen Campbell Back Home As Alzheimer's Disease Really Takes Grip


Glen Campbell

The singer-songwriter was admitted to the Nashville, Tennessee medical centre in early 2014, after Kim, his wife of 33 years, decided it was time to seek professional help for her ailing husband - but now she's his primary care-giver again as he battles the sixth of seven stages of Alzheimer's disease.

She tells the Chattanooga Times Free Press Campbell quietly returned home in late July (15), and it's sometimes tough to be around the confused country star.

She says, "He can become extremely combative if you try to redirect him to something that he doesn't want to do. I have a black eye right now. I know that's not him, that's not who he is; it's just the Alzheimer's."

The Wrecking Crew Trailer


The 1960s was an incredible decade for music, with the likes of Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Sonny & Cher, The Monkees and many, many others producing timeless hits that remain in the world's consciousness to this day. However, little do people know the reason for all these genius hits, for the catchy melodies and iconic hooks; behind every great artist of the day was a band unlike any other. The Wrecking Crew were probably the most sought after session musicians of the era, producing beats for all areas of the West Coast Sound, winning Grammys and become just as rich as the people they were supporting - and yet the general public remained widely oblivious to the music industry's secret weapon. They may have been ever-evolving, but these LA artists were still top choice for the biggest stars, namely Phil Spector who dubbed them 'The Phil Spector Wall of Sound Orchestra'.

The Wrecking Crew - Featurette And Clips


Through the 1960s, a collection of Los Angeles musicians worked together in order to support acts like The Beach Boys and Frank Sinatra. This group was called The Wrecking Crew, and they created some of the greatest and most influential songs, without receiving any of the credit for it. Beach Boys co-founder, Bryan Wilson, described how they were the most important part of that period in music. A documentary 12 years in the making, sheds some light on some of the unsung heroes of the musical industry in the 1960s.

The Wrecking Crew Showcases The Best Of 1960s Session Musicians


Brian Wilson Glen Campbell George Harrison

In the words of Annie Lennox and Aretha Franklin "behind every great man is a great woman", but in this case it's more likely that behind the song there's a great combination of great, unrecognised musicians too.

It is that concept that a new documentary The Wrecking Crew focuses on as it takes a look at the self-contained world of LA all-star session musicians that were behind each Grammy-award winning "Record of the Year" hit for six consecutive years during the 1960s - 1970s.
