The singer entered a Los Angeles recording studio to cut his final record as his memory and health failed.
“It’s not me that’s gonna suffer, it’s my loved ones,” Campbell told his wife Kim Campbell.
The record became a sad farewell to Glen’s wife and family. Glen told Kim, “I’m not gonna know… I’m not gonna miss them.”
