RIP: KEN BARNES


Record producer and musical genius Ken Barnes has died today. No words can express what he meant to Bing's career in the 1970s - so here are a few pictures of the greats he worked with - Bing, Fred Astaire, and Johnny Mercer.

He will be missed...

  1. Very sad news.

    I just found this very good, short interview with him, worth four or five minutes of one's time:

    He talks a bit about how he got started in the business, how he became a producer, how recording sessions changed, and a few other things. A nice thoughtful moment from the man. May his memory be eternal.

    Thanks from his Great Granddaughter
