Thanks, Mike, for posting that Glen and Kim celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary on 25 October. This morning, I belatedly came across an article that mentioned that they had been married at the North Phoenix Baptist Church in Arizona and that Waylon Jennings sang "Amanda" at the wedding reception. I had not know that Waylon had attended and performed at this event. I wonder if other artists performed as well?

Following is a video link to a live performance of Waylon performing "Amanda":

After listening to the lyrics of this song, I think I can understand why it was selected.

Thanks for that link, Cowpoke. It is nice to see Debby sharing photos from her personal collection and also memories of her with her Dad.

Debby's facebook page is awesome. All those great pictures were great to view and and so glad she shared them. Some of my favorite times were watching Debby perform with Glen in Branson, Missouri.

Thx for putting up that link Cowpoke

The Edge In Documentary About Glen Campbell


The Edge, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and many other stars are in a documentary about Glen Campbell's farewell tour called I'll Be Me.

The pop-country legend was diagnosed with advanced Alzheimer's disease in 2011. The film shows live performances from his Goodbye Tour along with moments from his career and battle against the disease.

The Edge shares his admiration for the singer, who continued to perform despite his health problems: "The audience being there somehow triggers his ability to access that other part of his brain, which is incredible."

I'll Be Me, directed by James Keach, won the Grand Jury Prize at the Nashville Festival and will be in theaters on Oct. 24.

The trailer includes footage from The Edge. More information here.

Thanks, Randy! Glad you enjoyed the Simpsons vid, too! I had been searching for this episode for years, but only found a different episode that has a few notes of WL playing in the background.

I agree...those performances on the 2012 Grammy Awards' segment that honored Glen Campbell were great and also ones for the history books, as they say. (I also really like Band Perry's version of "Gentle" on the new EP.)

Hey, let's keep Cowpoke, the master of "Check Out This Link" on his toes...let's all post the cool links that we find! :lol:
