I was saddened today to hear of the passing of Phyillis Diller... 95 years old God Bless Her!!! They report she passed with a smile on her face and you know I believe that. You know they tease about Joan Rivers and her plastic surgery but Phyllis led the way LOL (see some of her pics with Groucho Marx she didn't look anything like she did years later LOL). Been a rough year in the celebrity world -- Ernie Borgnine -- Robert Hejyes (Epstein) (sorry for spelling), Ron Palillo (Horshack), Marvin Hamlisch -- I know I'm leaving out many -- but all I can say is I wish I could thank all of them for the years of enjoyment from their incredible talents. Thank you Thank you Thank you for the smiles you brought to millions. God Bless You .and Phyllis -- Give Fang a hug for all of us!
When Marvin Hamlisch auditioned for the Juilliard School of Music, he played not Chopin or Mozart but the American folk standard "Goodnight, Irene," a choice that could have had lamentable results for any other prospective student.
Listening to a rebroadcast of a interview with Marvin Hamlisch, talking about working with Groucho Marx and Judy Garland. The awesomeness of the broadcast world is that people live on in the airwaves. RIP MARVIN HAMLISCH what a shock to hear you're gone.

Written by Rodney Vaccaro, and too excellent not to share: "To celebrate the life of Marvin Hamlisch, I went back and listened to one of my favorite pieces of music, from A Chorus Line, “At The Ballet.” I have so many fond memories associated with Hamlisch, from his work as an accompanist for Groucho Marx, his playful, lame, “La, la, las,” on Lydia, The Tattooed Lady, his magnificent scores for some of my favorite movies, including Bananas, Save The Tiger, Same Time Next Year, where his score is a character unto itself, of course The Way We Were and The Sting, where he reintroduced Scott Joplin to a whole generation. But like many of you, I most remember his score to A Chorus Line. For those of us who grew up in the theatre, this is a very special show. It was all our stories. This song especially captures what it is that drives us, in a way almost unique to any other single piece of art. I have always been in awe of the passions that drive us to live the lives we’ve chosen. What made us choose ...
Sad to hear about the death of Marvin Hamlisch. Back in the 70's, I was fortunate enough to accompany overnight KMPC DJ Kathy Gori to the one-man show put on by Groucho Marx at the Mark Taper...one man except for assistance on the piano and background vocals by Marvin Hamlisch...who was obviously enjoying himself as much as the audience. "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" will forever ring in my ears. RIP.
The man who played piano for Groucho Marx's one-man show at Carnegie Hall has died. Rest in peace, Marvin Hamlisch.
As a kid, my friend Tony Blumberg and I loved to listen to the comedy album "An Evening With Groucho Marx." Groucho told stories, joked, and sang. His accompanist, who sang along with Groucho on some of the numbers, was a young pianist named Marvin Hamlisch. Kid did alright for himself. Thanks for the tunes, Marvin.
