the wizard says...

Burt was so very successful with Hal David all those years ago and still has a good ear for music. Will he be leading some musicians ? So many great guys from yestayear still in the business. Swiss veteran drummer Charly Antolini well into his seventies on tour this year in Germany, and next year the Big Daddy of them all James Last who will be born on 27th April 1929 will be touring again and yet another two night sell out at The Royal Albert Hall besides other venues all around Europe. An era of greats who no doubt in time will hold similar status the the more serious composers like Bach etc. More details please OM, dont tell just half the story
