Bobby Womack had an amazing voice and a great influence in the world of R&B. The singer and songwriter has actually influenced some of the most famous stars in the world, including the Rolling Stones and Damon Albarn.

Numerous stars have expressed their sorrow for the passing of Bobby Womack. Candi Staton claimed in a statement that the famous singer had “style that nobody else could ever capture.” She also added that she “loved him and I will miss him so, so very much.” Peter Gabriel also published a statement to show how sad he is with the passing of his longtime friends.
While the exact cause of the death of the star remains unknown, it is believed that it can be linked to a condition that Bobby was suffering from. The star claimed in an interview back in 2013 that he was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. This condition made it difficult for Bobby Womack to remember his songs and the names of the people he had worked with.
Womack is widely known for songs such as Across 110th Street, I Wish He Didn’t Trust Me So Much, as well as If You Think You’re Lonely Now. The famous and talented singer was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009. Although he achieved fame for his great talent, it seems that it had been hard for Bobby to handle it. The star had to deal with substance abuse problems, which made him lose his fortune and his career. The singer decided to talk about these issues in 2012, during an interview with the Associated Press.
