This afternoon, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing the creative genius that is Rupert Holmes. I was invited to be the guest interviewer by Pam Stack and we, of course, talked about his excellent new novel MURDER YOUR EMPLOYER.
While the official interview is about 20 minutes, Rupert, Pam, and I chatted for about an hour afterwards. I can’t even begin to express what a career (and life) highlight that was for me. I have been a fan of Rupert’s theater pieces, like the musicals The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Curtains, and others, for years. Barbra Streisand’s album LAZY AFTERNOON, which was produced by Mr. Holmes and on which she sings four of his songs is one of my favorite albums of all time. I’ve always considered “By The Way” to be one of the overlooked gems of the Streisand catalog. They co-wrote that track–Streisand’s first writing credit. I could go on and on. But let’s face it, I am a forever fan!
