Bobby Womack Diagnosed With Alzheimer’s Disease
After sparking widespread rumors of a comeback after the release of “The Bravest Man in the Universe,” album soul singer Bobby Womack has announced that he’s experiencing early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
“The doctor says, ‘You have signs of Alzheimer’s, “it’s not bad yet, but it’s gonna get worse” Womack revealed.
Womack, 68, admitted that he’s having trouble remembering things, including the name of Damon Albarn, who co-produced “The Bravest Man in the Universe” with XL Recordings chief Richard Russell. At October’s Q Awards in London — where Womack won the award for best album — he introduced the Blur/Gorillaz frontman as “Damon Osbourne.” (The singer first collaborated with Albarn on the 2010 Gorillaz set “Plastic Beach.”) ”That’s so embarrassing,” Womack said of the memory lapse.
