R.I.P. Robert Sherman
While this site tends to focus on honoring my heroes in the world of Rock music; today we must honor songwriter Robert Sherman, who passed away yesterday at the age of 89. Mr. Sherman was co-writer (with his brother Richard) of many of the classic Disney songs, including tunes from two of my personal favorite movies; "Mary Poppins" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang".
Sherman's contribution to enriching the youth of countless children (mine included) cannot be overstated. On top of that, I would rank "Feed the Birds" from Mary Poppins as one of the greatest songs ever written.
Thanks for the memories Robert!!
