In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour across America. He thought it would last 5 weeks; instead it went for 151 spectacular sold out shows over a triumphant year and a half.

Instead, Glen and his wife went public with his diagnosis and announced that he and his family would set out on a "Goodbye Tour."

Incredible documentary about his life and spirit

I especially loved seeing his kids that played along with him at his concerts. What a close knit family. It was very touching. I enjoyed seeing pictures and videos from his past. My mother used to listen to his 8 track in the car and I didn't know how incredibly talented he was until I sat and watched the movie.

Beware of possible Excema

I purchased a Quell pain reliever and I didn't notice much better than before using it. I used it about 3 months and noticed an itchy upper eyelid and didn't think anything of it. I tried almost every cream I could think of and nothing worked. After few weeks I made an appointment with a Dermatologist. He said I had Excema and prescribed a very expensive ointment made in Japan. I used it and went back for a check up in a week because I noticed I had new areas that itched non-stop. The doctor said to keep using it. A couple days later I remember my leg itched ...
