Country star and former Beach Boy Glen Campbell will include a John Lennon song, "Grow Old With Me", at his upcoming gig in Los Angeles and his next CD of rock 'n' roll covers.
"Grow Old With Me" was one of the final songs written by John Lennon in 1980. It later appeared on the posthumous album, Milk and Honey, in 1984.
Campbell will perform the song at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, part of the promotional tour for his Capitol Records release "Meet Glen Campbell", which will also feature the song.
About "Grow Old With Me" and John Lennon, Glen said, "Isn't that a great song? What a writer he was. He wrote good melodies too."
