Legendary Songwriter Ervin Drake and His Beautiful Wife Edith

Thursday, February 3, 2011


The other day I had the once in a lifetime opportunity to meet legendary songwriter Ervin Drake and his beautiful wife Edith. We both attended a wonderful show at Town Hall  where they sat hand in hand. The next day I met the beautiful couple at The National Arts Club where I had the chance to photograph them and ask them a few questions on video. At 89 and 91 they are full of life and humor. Edith told me that the most important thing is that they feel good and stay active.They come into Manhattan about four times a week for cultural events and Edith runs her own boutique in Great Neck, New York.Ervin wrote  some  of my favorite songs including "It Was a Very Good year" and "Good Morning Heartache" which you can enjoy below.
