MusicLoad and each of our friends sends our love, positive vibrations and prayers to Bobby Womack, wishing him a speedy elimination and full recovery from all of his health issues.
Hours ago, Bootsy Collins posted a message to his Facebook page that soul legend Bobby Womack has been diagnosed with some serious health issues and has been hospitalized for pneumonia. Later after Bootsy spoke with Bobby, Bootsy posted again and wrote: "I JUST SPOKE TO OUR FRIEND BOBBY WOMACK. He Wanted You All to Know That He Loves You & Thxs for the Prayers. Docs Says He Is In 1st Stage of Colon Cancer, He is Very Up Beat About His Future, we laughed & joked before we hung up. Thxs Funkateers, we will get him Back on the One! — with Michael Howard."
Bobby has has a new album coming out in June 2012 to be titled The Bravest Man in the Universe. A sound snippets is available on his website.
I love this first recording below and his preambling words that sums up the treatment that some true artists have gotten and hopefully avoided... Enjoy! - Peace Love Groove, GC
