    I hesitated to watch it but ended up seeing it anyway...wow. If you ever have had a relative or friend with Alzheimer's, it really hits home. Poor Glen...gotta wonder if all the drugs and alcohol he consumed during his life played a part in his mental decline.

    I clicked by it. I'll have to watch, I love Glen. One of the most underrated guitarists out there.

    It's waiting on my DVR for me to watch this evening. I was fortunate enough to see him in concert a few times (including the final tour)......what a showman. It is a shame what this bastard of a disease has done to him and so many others.

    I was in Galveston yesterday and at a restaurant the live performer actually sang the song "Galveston". True story

    I heard about this..I'll have to see it. I also heard the new movie on Brian Wilson, "Love and Mercy" is quite good though the casting of John Cusack as the adult Brian Wilson is puzzling to me. He looks nothing like Wilson.

    He was playing in Sinatra's band once. Sinatra walked up to him, Glen said Hi, and Sinatra said "Who let this hillbilly in here?". :haha:

    The Wrecking Crew is great as they talk money and infighting in addition to studio stories.

    I think the Cusack thing will be an issue for me. I like him - just not as Brian Wilson

    I was watching Glen on "Later with Jools Holland" (BBC America) a few years back. He performed great, but when he was being interviewed by Jools there was something "off" with Glen. I said to to my wife, his mannerisms are just like my Mom's when she doesn't understand a question or can't quite follow, I bet he has some type of dementia. My Mom was diagnosed in 2008, I think they announced Glen a few years after that.

    you can't tell me that a life of drinking and drugging (by his own admission) didn't contribute to his swift decline.

    At least Paul Dano, who plays the young Brian Wilson resembles him somewhat...I wonder if Cusack had some part in in producing this film and cast himself in the role?

    This song always reminds me of the summer of '77 when my family moved into our new house.

    Rhinestone Cowboy was one of my favorite songs growing up. Funny, I'm older now than when he recorded that song. Much older.
