Bobby Womack Is Suffering From Alzheimer's
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.01.2013



NME reports that Bobby Womack is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Womack released his first single in 1954 and is now 68 years old.

He said: "The doctor says there are signs of Alzheimer's. It's not bad yet but will get worse. How can I not remember songs I wrote? It's frustrating. I don't feel together yet. Negative things come in my mind and it's hard for me to remember sometimes."

Womack just defeated colon cancer in May and released his new album The Bravest Man in the Universe in 2012, which was co-produced by Damon Albarn of Blur and XL Recordings co-founder Richard Russell.

He added: "The most embarrassing thing is I'll be ready to announce Damon and can't remember his last name."

This may be a reference to when he was at an awards ceremony in September and called Albarn "Damon Osbourne".

Even with the condition, he is still working on a new album called The Best Is Yet To Come.

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia. It gets worse as it continues and will eventually lead to death. It was first described in 1906 and is common in those over 65. By 2050, scientists believe that 1 in 85 people will suffer from the disease.
