Bobby Womack Diagnosed With Alzheimer's

Posted by - 07:51 AM on 01/02/13
Bobby Womack, who released the superb "comeback" album The Greatest Man In The Universe last year which was produced by Damon Albarn and Richard Russell, has revealed that he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and is in the early stages of the disease.
From The Interview"The doctor says there are signs of Alzheimerís, itís not bad yet but will get worse." he told BBC 6 Music, "How can I not remember songs I wrote? Itís frustrating."

"The most embarrassing thing was when we were getting ready to announce Damon and I can't remember his last name," he continued, "That's so embarrassing."

This guy's voice is pimp.

I'm sure frustrating would be an understatement, if this were happening to me or someone I loved.

My grandma had Alzheimer's and that shit is just scary to watch. I can't imagine what it would be like to have it and deal with it every day. It's probably my biggest fear in life, even more than dying itself.

For those of you who don't know who Bobby Womack is: He's directly responsible for influencing The Rolling Stones, along with a lot of other British blues rock bands.

I never heard of him before he was on Stylo. His voice is phenomenal. Such a bummer for him.

I work with dementia, and have therefore seen a large amounts of cases of the disease. Real, real shame. Hope his deterioration isn't too rapid.

In a dementia care home, so im surrounded by it a lot! Maybe I should have said that I work with people with dementia rather than dementia itself, my mistake. But yeah, it's an awful disease.

No no, it was just the way you worded it I thought for a second you suffered from it or something. Must be a weird cycle of tough but somewhat satisfying work there.
