How Did Jeff Cook Die?
Jeff Cook, who helped start the country band Alabama, has died and gone to heaven. The great guitarist died on Monday at his home in Florida, surrounded by his close friends and family, according to a press release from Cook’s representatives.
As of now, we don’t know exactly what killed Jeff, but we do know that he had Parkinson’s disease for a long time. In 2012, he was first told that he had the disease. In 2017, he told his fans that he had been diagnosed with cancer.
Jeff, the band’s fiddle player and guitarist, talked about the disease at the time and put out a statement that said, “This disease makes you lose your coordination, balance, and control of your muscles.”
Cook went on to say, “This has made it very hard for me to play guitar, sing, or play the fiddle. I’ve tried not to tell anyone about the details of my condition because I don’t want the music to stop or the party to end, and that won’t change no matter what. Let me be clear: I’m not giving up, but sometimes our bodies tell us what to do, and mine is telling me to take a break and get better.
