We ran into Larry McNeely after the show, and the next thing I know, Larry is inviting me to pick some with him. Then he asks me, ‘Do you want this job?’ I said ‘Yeah?’ . He knows how to sing a phrase, and those things still were there. That album, Adios - Glen’s sixty-fourth studio project - hits stores June 9. Jackson says there was definitely a sense of urgency as they went to work on the project. It was at a time where he was obviously having difficulties, even at the end of the tour.
