I always liked "Witchita Lineman", "Southern Nights", and "Gentle On My Mind". Alzheimer's is awful.

"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

As a side note, apparently Glen Campbell and Alice Cooper were very good friends. When all is said and done, I think the life story of Alice Cooper may be among the most interesting and enigmatic of stories. Nothing about that guy fits a mold.

I agree with you about Cooper, I respect a guy who does his won thing and doesn't let himself be steered, bullied or pigeon-holed!

And Glen seemed a stand up guy.  Alzheimer's not a fun way to exit.  Seems like he's got a good family too.

That Alice Cooper interview came down my Facebook feed, yesterday.  What a great interview.

RIP
