However, they were the songs of his idol Elvis Presley those that led him to recover his memory, so his daughter Rebecca said.
“My dad has always liked music, we always have music in the house. I remember during the COVID quarantine my dad and I were in the car and we went to my cousin’s house to drop off a present, I put some of his old music in the car. He absolutely loves Elvis Presley, but listen to any kind of music; any kind of beat, he literally loves it,” he told British media.
“The disease makes people more angry, agitated and frustrated because they don’t know what’s going on. But with my dad, he just doesn’t seem to care and I think that’s the best way to be — he absolutely loves life now,” she added.
Such has been the positive impact that music has had on his life, that the man has joined a DJ from the area to liven up his presentations with his best dance steps.
