September 22, 1989 Russian-born American composer and lyricist Irving Berlin dies. 

day 169

I sang Always today in recognition of Irving Berlin.  When I looked up the song I found out that not only did he write it for his wife (how romantic!) but he also assigned the royalties to her!  Now THAT is love!

I’m in Southampton tonight with the Stingers.  Fall weddings are really beautiful and we’re having a great time.  I always love having Dylan on a gig with me.


Gotta run.  More tomorrow.
