Super Nova: Mr. Burt Bacharach (The Silver Fox)”
I had to travel from South Carolina where I live now to take care of some business and it coincided with the Burt Bacharach’s book signing!
When I arrived @ the book signing @ 5:30 PM, my Burt buddies Jeanne & Tyler were already in line waiting for Burt. About 6:15 PM Burt & his tour manager Sue Main arrived. I would say there were about 70 to 80 fans waiting.
“The Pen is mighty than the Sword”
Burt signed Jeanne’s book 1st. Burt & Jeanne smile @ each other in recognition of each other! Also Jeanne got a handshake from Burt! I wonder if Jeanne has washed her hand yet (lol)? I was next in line to have my book signed. Burt mentions my name as I approached the table. Burt gave me one of those manly handshakes!
Jeanne, Tyler & I stood off to the side, while other fans had their books signed. Sue Main came over to talk with all three of us for about 15 minutes. I thought that was very nice. What was really special when one the managers @ the store told Jeanne, Tyler & I, that we had to leave. Sue Main told the man, "They are friends of mine!” I told Sue later that meant so much to all of us! I believe Burt signed about another 100 books when all of the fans left. We told Burt & Sue about 10 minutes later good bye and wished them a successful tour in Europe!
I will make that trek to San Diego in August this year again to see Burt in concert!
In addition, I will send Mark some photos from the book signing.
The Burt Bacharach Forum is a board to discuss the music and career of composer Burt Bacharach and performers associated with his songs.
