Burt Bacharach is a classically trained pianist whose songs and compositions have been recorded by the most influential artists of the twentieth century. Over the past six decades, his legendary songwriting has touched millions of devoted listeners all over the world. He has written more than seventy Top 40 hits and won three Academy Awards, eight Grammys (including one for lifetime achievement), and an Emmy, was nominated for a Tony, and received the prestigious Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. “What the World Needs Now is Love,” Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head”, “That’s What Friends are For” and “Walk on By” are just a handful of his hits.
In his memoir, Anyone Who Had a Heart, Bacharach steps out from behind the music to give an honest, engaging look at his life—from a childhood in Forest Hills, New York, where he first fell in love with music after seeing Dizzy Gillespie perform to his work with Hal David, Dionne Warwick, Elvis Costello, Carole Bayer Sager, Neil Diamond, and many others to his tumultuous marriages and the tragic suicide of his daughter. His memoir is the story of a man who has always expressed his deepest feelings through his music. His memoir offers a candid backstage look at show business as well as the personal struggles of an artist whose incredible body of work has earned him a unique position in the American cultural landscape.
