“I’ve been a caregiver for 14 years,” he said in an interview with “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes. His dad was diagnosed with the disease at age 62 when Zangaro was just 29. Since then, Zangaro has had to completely readjust his life, which up to that point had fully revolved around songwriting and touring.
