Bobby Womack says he's experiencing the early signs of Alzheimer's disease. Womack, who's 68, tells New Music Express he gets frustrated when he can't remember songs he wrote.

He says he sometimes forgets the last name of Damon Albarn of Blur, who co-produced Womack's latest album, "The Bravest Man in the Universe."

Womack says, "It's not bad yet but will get worse."
