Singer Bobby Womack diagnosed with Alzheimer’s

/ 11:19 AM January 03, 2013

NEW YORK – Singer Bobby Womack has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member told the BBC in a recent interview the diagnosis came after he began having difficulty remembering his songs and the names of people he’s worked with.

A spokeswoman did not immediately reply to a message left by The Associated Press.


The soul singer has cut a wide path through the music business as a performer and songwriter in his 50-year career. He recently launched another act with “The Bravest Man in the Universe,” the Damon Albarn-produced comeback album that made several best-of lists.

Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disease characterized by memory loss. It’s the latest health problem for the 68-year-old singer, who’s also been fighting cancer and other maladies.
