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.
