Sad news. Much like Gord Downie, we kind of knew this was coming. I saw parts of the "Spirit Unforgettable" documentary that @nuckin_futz linked.

 

As a musician, I really felt for him. Forgetting lyrics is something that all of us singers fear, but there are certain songs that we've done so often, we can pretty much auto-pilot them. John didn't even have that luxury, as the words could just "disappear" on him at any time, no matter how many times he had performed a song.

 

Alzheimers sucks....
