We all miss you here on this spinning rock, so I thought I’d record a few of your most celebrated songs. Just a little birthday tribute to you and all of us who love your touching heartfelt words and music.
I hope you like my interpretations of your works and enjoy listening to them as much as I have enjoyed recording them. I’d like to thank you, Leonard, for writing some of the greatest songs of all time. Your words and are so truthful and have given me the drive and reason to keep making musical art. Even during global Pandemic, your words shine like diamonds in the dark.
Due to the pandemic the band and I are unable do a proper live performance of these works until March 2021. So in light of this, here is a YouTube link to the album.
You can also stream it on Spotify later this month, in case you have streaming devices in The Great Beyond.
You were so right, Leonard, there is a crack in everything and that’s how the light gets in.
Much Respect and Many Thanks to you on your birthday.
