Hal Ketchum

Hal Ketchum, best known for hits like "Past The Point Of Rescue" and "Small Town Saturday Night" has been diagnosed with Alzheimers/ Demetia. His condition was revealled in a Facebook message from his wife Andrea:

Dear friends and fans of Hal, this is Andrea, Hal's wife.
I know everyone is wondering why there are no future tour dates, and speculations as to the reason.
Our family would like to share the cause for this.
Unfortunately, Hal is suffering from Alzheimer's/ Dementia. He has been battling this for some time now, but because of his love for his fans, he continued performing as long as it was possible.
Dementia is an exhausting and confusing illness and now it's time for Hal to stay home with loved ones.
Hal is otherwise healthy and happy, enjoying time with his family and friends.
We all deeply appreciate how much love that you all have for Hal and how much his music means to you! 
Also, a heartfelt thank you to all the incredible musicians that have joined him on this journey, with more than special love to Kenny Grimes, without whom , this last year of shows would not have been possible.
Please know that I do read all of your comments to Hal and that we will continue to check in from time to time.
Lots of love and appreciation to you all from Hal and the entire Ketchum family. ❤
