R&B Legend Bobby Womack has passed away at the age of 70. His family confirmed to us that he passed away this morning. His record label XL Recordings, confirmed his passing in the past hour.

Womack just performed in the past few weeks. He was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2009.

The cause of death right now is unknown.

People wanted this to be a hoax like Ronnie James Dio, Vesta, George Duke and others. Sadly, it is not.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Our heartfelt condolences to the Womack family. Thank you Bobby for the music you have left us. Much Love…Always…

    I guess we will never know if he had any involvement with Sam Cooke’s
    death.  He did marry Sam’s wife two months after Sam was murdered! 
    Bobby was Sam’s “best friend”.  With friends like that who needs
    enemies.  Sam was a known womanizer, but his “best friend” Bobby showed
    up at Sam’s funeral wearing Sam’s clothes and jewelery.  It is also said
    that Linda (Sam’s widow/Bobby’s wife) caught Bobby sleeping with her 14
    year old daughter who eventually married Bobby’s brother Cecil and
    never talked to her mom again.  Sorry, but Bobby seems like a jerk and I
    do think he had some involvement in Sam’s death.
