Glen Travis Campbell turned 81 yesterday, Saturday!

In June 2011, Campbell announced he had been diagnosed with
Alzheimer’s disease. On March 8, 2016, Rolling Stone reported 
he was living in a Nashville memory care facility and that he was
in the "final stages" of his disease. He was unable to communicate
with people and understand what people said to him. However, his
family also said he was receiving good care and was "happy" and
"cheerful”. The latest update on his condition stated he no longer
can play the guitar. His final studio album, Adiós, is slated for
release on June 9, 2017. It contains previous recordings.

The FBI lab reported that it could not determine the lyrics to "Louie Louie."

A rumor that the lyrics were intentionally slurred by the Kingsmen—to cover up
the alleged fact that they were laced with profanity, graphically depicting sex
between the sailor and his lady, were circulated among teens and the  song was
banned on many radio stations and in the country, including Indiana, where is
was personally prohibited by then Governor Matthew Welsh.

These actions were all taken despite the small matter that practically no one
could distinguish the actual lyrics. Denials of chicanery by Kingsmen and Ely
did not stop the controversy. The FBI started a 31-month investigation into the
matter and concluded they were "unable to interpret any of the wording in the
record”.
