Less than a year after beating colon cancer, soul veteran Bobby Womack has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. In a recent interview with UK paper The Sun, Womack said he paid a visit to his doctor after experiencing forgetfulness onstage.

More than a decade after recording no new material, the R&B singer made his big comeback with last year’s critically acclaimed album, The Bravest Man in the Universe, which won the UK’s Q Award for Best Album of 2012. The record was produced by Blur and Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn, whose last name Womack admits to forgetting during an embarrassing moment in public. According to The Sun, the musician feels discouraged by early symptoms of the ever-encroaching disease.

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.
