Bobby Vee Records Again After Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

ST. JOSEPH, Minn. (February 5, 2014) Bobby Vee hasn't performed since 2011, but he has returned to the studio for the first time since he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease to produce a new album titled "The Adobe Sessions."

The album features some of Vee's favorite songs from fellow artists such as Gordon Lightfoot and Ricky Nelson.

He said says he decided to record again because he felt he "wanted to do some more music."

Vee said he isn't shy about talking about how the disease has affected him.

His speech is slowed and he often struggles to string sentences together.

Vee is best known for such hits as "Take Good Care of My Baby," ''Rubber Ball" and "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes."
