Just as the news sunk in about about losing Hugh McCracken, we heard about the devastating death of Phil Ramone.
Aside from being a dear friend and a true genius, Phil really was instrumental in putting dave on the map by hiring him to write the horns for Simon and Garfunkel’s “My Little Town” after an accidental meeting at the Grammy’s.
There is so much to say about this wonderful man. He was generous and kind and funny and incredibly gifted. My heart goes out to Karen and his wonderful sons.
Please Phil, please Hugh, both of you, rest in peace and thank you.
