Entertainment Tony Bennett doesn't know he has Alzheimer's
Master Bennett eyes historic coaching feat
Veteran South Sydney NRL mentor Wayne Bennett is a win away from becoming the first coach in 113 years to snare premierships with three different clubs. Early 1900s legend Arthur Halloway coached Balmain and Eastern Suburbs to eight premierships and should be considered an Immortal having also snared seven titles as a player or captain-coach.Gibson won five premierships with the Roosters and Parramatta, while Tim Sheens nabbed three in total with Canberra and Wests Tigers.
Tony Bennett doesn't know he has Alzheimer’s disease.
The 95-year-old music legend's wife, Susan Crow, has opened up about her husband's battle with the illness - which slowly destroys memory and thinking skills - and revealed he is not aware he is suffering and has moments where he is "more alert".
In an interview with Anderson Cooper on CBS News' '60 Minutes', Susan said: “Every day is different. Tony late at night, sometimes early in the morning, he’s more alert, if I can use that word.
“So, I’ll tell him, ‘Tone, you’re gonna be on '60 Minutes'.’ He’s, like, ‘Great.’
“I said, ‘You remember that show, '60 Minutes'‘ he’s, like, ‘I do.’ But in any other given moment, he won’t know.”

PAUL GALLEN: There was one big factor that swung Saturday's match in favour of the Penrith Panthers.I'm filthy I backed away from it a few weeks ago, but I said at the start of the season that when it came to the biggest games of the year that Melbourne would miss Cameron Smith.
She then said: “He recognises me, thank goodness, his children you know, we are blessed in a lotta ways. He’s very sweet. He doesn’t know he has it."
Anderson clarified: “He doesn’t know he has it?” to which Susan confirmed: “No.”
The legendary singer was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2016, and the 'I Left My Heart in San Francisco' star recently retired from performing and released his final album, 'Love for Sale', a collaborative LP with Lady Gaga, last week.
It was Susan who implored Tony to step back from performing.
His son and manager Danny Bennett previously explained: "His continued health is the most important part of this, and when we heard the doctors - when Tony’s wife, Susan heard them - she said, ‘Absolutely not.'
"He’ll be doing other things, but not those upcoming shows. It’s not the singing aspect but, rather, the travelling. Look, he gets tired. The decision is being made that doing concerts now is just too much for him.
"We don’t want him to fall on stage, for instance - something as simple as that."
