Bruce Willis is inclined to his love of music after his diagnosis with aphasia.
The star flaunted his skills in harmonica during a “jam session” with his dear 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 team-up 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, which is a total flop, doubled as a musical masterpiece for him.
The video came following Willis’ forced retirement from acting in March after finding out he has aphasia, a cognitive condition that impacts a person’s communication ability.
“This is a really challenging time for our family, and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion, and support,” his family – not including his ex-wife Demi Moore and their daughters Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah – said in a joint statement.

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 coming back to the famous Fox Plaza Building, which was seen in Die Hard for the 34th anniversary of the movie. A video on Instagram shows interspersed videos of her husband from the movie as an “Ode to Joy” by Beethoven version of Tabernacle Choir plays as background music.
