Richard Sherman Interview

You all heard by now that Richard M Sherman passed away recently. He would have been 96 years old next week on June 12. 
Richard was amazing in so many ways. Everybody who met him has a Richard Sherman story. He was happy to meet anybody who wanted to meet him. You might have seen Richard in bonus material on some of Disney's home video discs. 
I just came across this fantastic interview with him on Youtube. It was conducted in 2011 by Scott Feinberg. Richard is very much at ease here at his home. He reflects on his songwriting career with his brother Robert, as well as working with Walt Disney, PL Travers and others. 
Great stories from someone who was a true genius, an entertainer and an optimist. He will be greatly missed.

So pour yourself a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and enjoy the story of Richard Sherman.

  1. Weird to think that he and his brother are no longer around. "Feed the Birds" is still my favorite piece of theirs; once in a while it randomly gets stuck in my head. RIP, Mr. Sherman.
