Hal David: in his own words

Paul Williams

Music Week looks back on an interview it conducted with songwriting legend Hal David, who passed away on Saturday aged 91.

David was honoured back in 2004 by US society ASCAP - where he served as president from 1980 and 1986 and then a memebr of the board of directors - at its annual awards in Lodnon. Ahead of him receiving that honour we caught up with him to share his thoughts on Burt Bacharach, Dionne Warwick and songwriting in general.
