​[Source: NME.com] Country legend Glen Campbell has been diagnosed with the degenerative brain condition Alzheimer's disease. 


The singer, who is 75 years old and whose hits include 'Wichita Lineman' and 'Rhinestone Cowboy' has said he has made the decision to go public as he wants people to understand his condition and that it is affecting his ability to perform live, according to People magazine

The singer's wife Kim said:"Glen is still an awesome guitar player and singer. But if he flubs a lyric or gets confused on stage, I wouldn’t want people to think, 'What's the matter with him? Is he drunk?'"

Campbell was diagnosed with the condition six months ago and has said he will perform live for the last time this autumn. He added: "I still love making music. And I still love performing for my fans. I'd like to thank them for sticking with me through thick and thin."

The singer will also release his final studio album 'Ghost On The Canvas' in late August.
