(Gibson) Guitar great and country music legend Glen Campbell has revealed that he is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

The Country Music Hall of Famer, who has scored more than 80 top 10 hits and sold more than 45 million albums, just recorded his final CD, Ghost on the Canvas, with help from rock luminaries like Jakob Dylan, Billy Corgan, Dick Dale, Chris Isaak and Rick Nielsen.

But with a final tour also being planned, Glen and his wife Kim decided to go public with news of Campbell's condition. Kim told People magazine,"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?'" more on this story
