After he got identified with Alzheimer’s, a nasty disease, all the years he rocked suddenly faded away from his memory, and he was completely lost. Most of the time Tony placed himself in front of the books and old photos and tried to recall every single moment.
Susan, his wife, still remembers the first day he told her that he really finds it difficult to recollect the names of the musicians. The musicians with whom Tom usually playing with. Susan found it unusual, and she told Tony to go and see a doctor for the same.
Susan and Tony met Dr. Gayatri Devi and soon diagnosed him with Alzheimer’s Disease in the year 2017. The Doctor shared with them that, Tony’s hippocampus, the Grand Central Station of memories was not working well in retrieving the memories.
Susan is the third wife of the singer, who tied their knot in the year 2007. Till then, they had a very happy life together taking care of each other. After Tony got diagnosed with the memory disease, Susan then took the role of a full-time caregiver with the love she held for Tony.
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga released their first album in 2014. After a couple of years, in 2018, they made a hit record together.
Tony could recollect the songs but still fails to remember how he performed in front of a huge audience. Lady Gaga knew it was not an easy task anymore!
The show got opened up by the singer Lady Gaga. Backstage, Susan did her best to remind Tony of what was happening around. Once he saw the crowd, he raised his hands, and it was alright. Though he missed a few steps during his performance, the crowd was not even cared about it, and the show went on. Finally, the show was a triumph.
