Sad news today that my good friend and songwriting partner Norman Gimbel passed away at the age of 91. Norman was an Oscar and Grammy winning songwriter along with numerous other top awards and was a member of the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. We wrote around 15 songs together, mostly for feature films. Norman was an incredible talent; brilliant in every way, and one who had successfully navigated every genre in popular music. I remember one of countless moments with Norman so fondly, when after a playback via phone of a newly finished song for a prominent filmmaker, he said to me privately....

“Don’t ever tell them how easy this work is for us, and how much fun we’ve had writing these songs!.... or else they’ll never pay us all this money again!”... as he laughed out loud!

Norman .... you will be so missed!
Rest In Peace!
