Jürgen Drews on a hit tour despite illness

Last year, Jürgen Drews (77) made it public that he was terminally ill. The hit star suffers from peripheral polyneuropathy, a nerve disease that affects the range of motion in his legs. Nevertheless, it is out of the question for Drews to take it easy: he is currently on tour with Florian Silbereisen (40).

“I have it under control because I can still walk quite well. My legs still carry me. Sometimes I shuffle a bit, but I’m not in pain,” explains the German musician “Bild”. But anyone who visits his performances will see that Drews is slower on stage.
