R&B soul singer Bobby Womack died at age 70 Friday. A representative for Womack’s label confirmed the death to Rolling Stone magazine.
The cause of death was not immediately given.
Womack told the BBC more than a year ago that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He realized he was having problems when it became difficult for him to remember his songs and the names of people he has worked with.
The Alzheimer’s diagnosis came after other illnesses, including cancer.
Womack’s career spanned several decades and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009.
