An underrated figure in music annals…. I especially would have especially loved seeing him do “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” and “Centerfield” back-to-back.

Thanks for that report, Bernie.

Trivia- back in the mid 70's, my neighbor Chris Caswell was performing at the Pacifica Hotel in Westchester. That name will sound familiar to Bernie as Chris would go on to become Paul Williams pianist, director, etc. 

One night at the Pacifica I asked Chris what the most requested song was. Without flinching he said, "Proud Mary" while simultaneously rolling his eyes. I guess he performed it so often it was on his 'do not perform' list LOL!
