The three-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has been suffering from a nervous system disorder, peripheral neuropathy, that has made it very difficult to do the very thing that has defined his professional life: play guitar. The condition can cause muscle weakness, as well as numbness in the hands and feet and a loss of coordination.
