In a February interview with AARP Magazine, Bennett revealed that he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease back in 2016. The singer wrote to Twitter, "Life is a gift — even with Alzheimer's. Thank you to [his wife] Susan and my family for their support, and AARP The Magazine for telling my story."
In the interview, Susan said Bennett is "not always sure where he is or what is happening around him — there's a lot about him that I miss because he's not the old Tony anymore. But when he sings, he's the old Tony — that music is helping his brain health."
