Bruce Willis Performs with Harmonica After Aphasia Diagnosis

Bruce Willis deals with his love of music after being diagnosed with aphasia.

The star showed off her harmonica skills during a “jam session” with his good friend Derek Richard Thomas, who sang a tune while playing the guitar.

The 67-year-old actor’s wife, Emma Heming Willis, posted a clip of the passionate collaboration on Instagram, an encouraging message for Willis.

“Their talent is speaking for itself. I’ll just leave this here @derekrichardthomas #jamsession,” Heming Willis wrote on the post showing the black and white footage of the two. 

Willis has always been inclined to music. He dropped his debut record, titled The Return of Bruno, in 1987 under the name Bruno Randolini – his alter ego. And then, he delivered If It Don’t Kill You, Just Makes You Stronger and Classic Bruce Willis

The actor’s 1991 Hudson Hawk was a complete flop but became a musical masterpiece for him.

The video came after Willis’ forced retirement from acting in March after discovering he suffers from aphasia, a cognitive disorder that affects a person’s ability to communicate.

The statement further said, “We are moving through this as a strong family unit and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him.” 

A month ago, Heming uploaded playful footage of Willis returning to the iconic Fox Plaza Building, featured in Die Hard for the film’s 34th anniversary. A video on Instagram shows intercutting videos of her husband from the film as an “Ode to Joy” from the Tabernacle Choir’s version of Beethoven plays the background music.
