Sending thoughts & prayers to Bob Esty
I just heard that Bob Esty suffered another stroke this morning, and is currently at the hospital.
It was a little over a year ago when I interviewed the legendary songwriter and music producer. He is a lovely, thoughtful, and charming guy, and my heart aches for him.
Please join me in sending thoughts and prayers to Bob. He's had a rough year, having lost his beloved sister, and, due to ongoing medical and financial issues, needed to move out of his longtime West Hollywood home.
I hope you will visit Esty's YouCaring Page to help him through this difficult time. From the site:
Legendary Songwriter/Producer/Musician BOB ESTY has found himself in an unexpected transitional time of his life, and desperately needs our financial support...After decades of celebrating his music, we have realized he has NOT been compensated properly at all for promised Royalties and Credits that are long over-due him. This is heart-breaking given the fact of his Advanced Years, Serious Health Issues and his Housing currently in serious jeopardy...
We have secured a Top LA Entertainment Attorney who is aggressively going after what is legally due him...But, in the meantime, this great Maestro- who has given us the soundtrack of our lives with such classic Top Ten's as Donna Summer's LAST DANCE, Cher's TAKE ME HOME, Barbra Streisand's MAIN EVENT/FIGHT, The Weather Girls ITS RAINING MEN, etc. (Google His Incredible List of Accomplishments) needs any amount of contribution to sustain himself during this very challenging time in his Life. BOB ESTY has given so many the magical gift of music... Please help us give back to support him and his legal expenses... Anyone who has danced THE LAST DANCE- and there are so many of you- NOW IS THE TIME to show your Love & Appreciation ~ THANK YOU SO MUCH
