My friend Andrew Gold

It was with great sadness of the passing of my friend and work partner Andrew Gold, with whom I wrote and recorded several songs while I was living in Los Angeles in the 1980’s.

He was a great musician, multi-talented — guitar, piano, drums, bass and vocals. He once told me his voice was a combination of the best singer in the world (his mother, Marni Nixon) and the worst singer in the world (his dad, Ernest Gold). That’s why he wanted to work with me, because he didn’t like the sound of his own voice.

He was a great friend with a wonderful sense of humor. His love of music was just as strong as mine.

The world has lost a great musician. Thank God I still have a few recordings that we made together, which unfortunately were never released. Below you can listen to the song „Marilyn“ which I wrote and on which he played guitar. Drums were played by Michael Botts.
