May 12, 1928 – February 8, 2023
A musical genius has passed away. BURT BACHARACH was born 94 years
ago in Kansas City and passed away 2 days ago in his home in Los Angeles.
I guess, most of us music lovers, knew him best through countless – more
than 1000 – artists who recorded/performed the songs he wrote for them.
He composed hundreds of pop songs from the late 1950s through the 1980s,
many in collaboration with lyricist Hal David. He’s a six-time Grammy Award
winner and three-time Academy Award winner. His legacy is massive and will
live on as long as there is music. R.I.P.
