The ever-soulful crooner Bobby Womack (pictured) whose musical career spans some 50 years recently revealed he is battling the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease, reports CNN.

With chart-busting hits, such as “Across 110th Street,” “Daylight,” and “That’s the Way I Feel About Cha,” Womack discussed his diagnosis on BBC 6 with host Gilles Peterson, “The doctor said you have signs of Alzheimer’s,” the 68-year-old singer lamented.  “He said it’s not bad yet, but it’s going to get worse.  How can I not remember songs that I wrote? That’s frustrating.”

Listen to “That’s the Way I Feel About Cha” here:

Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia and its symptoms include memory loss and problems with judgment and thinking. Many of the drugs on the market today can help those who are stricken with the disease but there is no cure.

Womack, who was inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009 and even wrote the Rolling Stones‘ first U.K. No. 1 hit, “It’s All Over Now,” has had his far share of medical battles over the years.  Just earlier this year, he received a clean bill of health from his doctors from cancers he developed in his prostate and colon. After having a cocaine addiction in the ’80s that nearly derailed his career, Womack has battled diabetes, severe bouts of pneumonia, a collapsed lung, and seizures over the years.

Despite his most-recent health crisis, Womack contends that he’ll just take it one day at a time, telling CNN, “With the support of many good doctors, my family, and all of my wonderful fans, I will continue to write and perform and bring the good music to the people for as long as I can.  Thanks to all of my fans for their prayers and well wishes. I truly appreciate and can feel your love.”

Womack’s team of doctors recently green lighted a world tour he put together that began late last year to promote his latest album, “The Greatest Man in the Universe,” a body of work he was so anxious to promote after an 18-year absence from a recording studio.

We love you, Bobby, and wish you well!
