Burt Bacharach will be here in concert Thursday night. I’ve never seen him in concert yet I’ve always was a huge fan of his music. He is really getting up there in age. He is 77 and still going strong. I am sure him and his orchestra will put on a great show.
When artist get this old, you have to see them when you can. Most from his generation is long gone.
LEGENDARY composer Burt Bacharach remembers sitting in a plane leaving New York when a woman next to him mustered enough nerve to talk to him.
She said, "Mind if I tell you something? I can't make love unless I've got your music on."
It worked then. And 37 years after "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head," it works today. Bacharach, 77, is thrilled his bevy of hit tunes (48 in the Top 10 and nine at No. 1) still promotes the passion in people.
I had a lady over last year and I had Burt Bacharach playing. We were supposed to go out (which would have meant me spending money and listening to her talk) but instead we stayed in and made love all night with a Burt Bacharach 8track tape playing.
