We are sad to report that Jeff Cook, guitarist and fiddle player with the iconic country band Alabama, has announced he has Parkinson’s disease and that he will no longer be regularly touring with the band. Cook, who is one of the founding members and who has been with the band since 1969,  is 67.

Cook was apparently diagnosed about four years ago but the band kept the news private until now. Cook said the chronic neurological disorder gives him tremors that make it hard for him to play his instruments, but he didn’t want to stop playing music. He said he is not quitting the band, but won’t be regularly touring with Alabama so he can rest. In the 1980s Alabama dominated country music with hits like Love in the First Degree, Mountain Music, and Dixieland Delight.
