Burt’s publicity agency recently faxed me the list of Burt’s appearances for the first half of this year.
Nothing we didn’t know before, but you can find the now reconfirmed dates on the On Tour page.
Bibliophiles take note…
“Interviews with both Burt Bacharach and Hal David are featured in the new book “Behind The Muse: Pop and Rock’s Greatest Songwriters Talk About Their Work and Inspiration” by Bill DeMain.
(Bill contributed to the liner notes for “The Look Of Love” box set.) In addition to the interviews with Burt and Hal, conducted in 1996 and 1998, the book features interviews with over 40 successful and respected songwriters (including Jimmy Webb, Brian Wilson, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Billy Joel, Sherly Crow and many others). More details on the book, and ordering information, can be found at the website of the publisher, Tiny Ripple Books. The book can also be ordered through the amazon.com and Barnes & Noble websites.
