Remembering Rod McKuen
This week my dear friend Rod McKuen (April 29, 1933 – January 29, 2015) passed away.
I first noticed Rod in the early '60, working with Capitol Records we issued the LP Rod McKuen Sings Rod McKuen (Capitol T 2079). I still have the lp in my collection.
Between 1970-1975 Rod visited The Netherlands many times. He always stayed at the famous Hotel L'Europe in Amsterdam.
After each concert I got some records from Rod McKuen back in L'Europe. (1971 Rod McKuen at Carnegie Hall (W 1794) signed : To Herman - All The Best - Rod McKuen Amsterdam 17 oct 71.
A Portrait of Rod McKuen (SR 5072)
Rod McKuen Grand Tour (2Xs 1947) with signed picture "For Herman Sleep Warm and Stay Well Rod Mckuen"

Thank you Rod for those wonderful years you joined us.
