Herb turns 83 years old today!!! Matt Clark Sanford, MI
Happy Birthday Herb
Happiest of Birthdays Herb and May you have many more. And May your day be more blessed than ever
Happy Birthday to the man who gave the lead sheet of (They Long To Be) Close To You to Richard Carpenter and probably the smartest man in the music business! Happy 83rd to Herb Alpert, all health and happiness to you and yours!!
I posted this in the "Wonderful World" thread, but Happy Birthday again! It's hard 2 believe that the dashing, handsome young leader of The Tijuana Brass is now at 83 the dashing, handsome, young("you are as young as your dreams and as old as your cynicism" it once was said.)musician who continues to innovate, grow and create new music and new art that puts much younger artists to shame.Herb, Quincy Jones, Burt Bacharach must be all drinking from the same well that keeps them young and strong.(My father who is also just turned 80, is included in this lineup as well)
Anyway,again Happy Birthday!!
I can't begin to tell you just how much you've touched my life and made the world a much better place.
Happy Birthday, Herb!
Happy Birthday to one of the most talented and classy dudes out there!
