      I saw him live once, in 2004, and was blown away enough that when this sad news hit I just had to write about it.

        One of the interesting things about music and Alzheimers is that the memories of songs and singing are in a different areas of the brain, than the connection of memories and speaking. Someone with a stroke who can't speak is able to sing as well.

        Found a really nice story about Tony and his devoted wife. He is still able to sing well without forgetting the lyrics. 

        Tony Bennett is doing more than most at 94 and Alzheimers
