Great youtube Suzie!

Actually I'm not surprised. The reason why is I was aware that Cooper and Glenn were friends. Years ago when I would go to MLB Spring Training in Phoenix and Tucson there would be a time or two that Alice Cooper would come out to a preseason ball game, didn't matter who played. He loved baseball, he loved talking to people, and loved talking about the game. AND talking about the music people!

Here's another reason. It's been years but in certain radio FM markets Alice would have his own evening dj show. They don't have it in my area but it's still going--google in Nights With Alice Cooper.

When I tuned in he would play a lot of classic rock that most of the fans of that genre were familiar with but mix it up with a fair amount of obscurities; unreleased versions of classic rock songs, live cuts from Westwood One or King Bisquit Flower Hour shows, etc, etc. and I remember Cooper commenting a few times about Campbell; his career, his awesome run on chart hits, and especially his guitar playing.

That was a great interview Suzy! Thanks!

I'm so mad at his current wife and I hope she pays for not allowing someone to say goodbye to a deal friend .

It may well be that Glenn himself had requested at a certain point that he not have visitors. Alzheimer's is a horrific disease that robs the victim of their identity, many would prefer to be remembered as they were and not the empty body Alzheimer's leaves them.

He seemed like one of the good guys, may he R.I.P.

We've lost a legend.

RIP Glenn
