There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

The world of music has truly lost one of the greats!
Bobby Womack, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, passed away Friday at the age of 70, after suffering from colon cancer and diabetes!
A rep from Womack's label XL Recordings confirmed tragically confirmed his death. He was suffering from colon cancer and diabetes at the time of his passing.
As a member of the Valentino's, he saw his hit It's All Over Now covered by the Rolling Stones in 1964, and later on his own he had a series of successful releases that solidified him as one of the best in business.
Right up to his death, Bobby was working on recording his next album featuring Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart and Snoop.
Rest in peace, Bobby!
