I’m Mattie, a nice Jewish girl from the Bronx. I first met Dave, a jazz musician, in 1965 on a student tour of Europe when I was 21 and he was 23.
After a 9 year friendship turned to love, we married in 1975.
Dave’s career flourished and we became known as sort of a “mom and pop” unit in the music business.
He became a huge star in Japan and toured there a few times a year.
I handled the business part, wrote his lyrics and he wrote the music.
We had, I thought a pretty good marriage and partnership until one morning, 36 years later, while I was making him eggs, he told me he was in love with a Japanese woman and dumped me.
I was 67 and never saw it coming.
