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!

Just when we thought Bobby Womack was going to be okay for a while after his early on-set Alzheimer's was announced a few months ago, we're hearing that he's canceled a show due to being sick. This is sparking a lot of fear in his fans!
He was due to play at the famous Sydney Opera House on Friday night, but called off the show due to his health. At 69 years old and with his previous diagnosis, anybody's guess is a good one at this point as to why. Here's what the venue said:

Bobby Womack, soul singing legend, has been diagnosed with early Alzheimer's!
Oh no! That's so sad.
We previously mentioned that Womack had just survived colon cancer and some pretty bad pneumonia.
It's only the very beginning but the dementia can rapidly progress and get much worse in a short amount of time.
