Jim Croce was one hell of a singer-songwriter. Who could forget "Time In A Bottle" "Cat In The Cradle" or "I 'll Have to Say I Love You In A Song". The world lost this great and very mazing artist in a plane crash on this date in 1973. His infant son, A.J. (a great singer-songwriter in his own right was not even two when he lost his father. Jim and his wife had just moved into San Diego, just before the accident! "Time In A Bottle" was written expressly for hia infant son. "A.J." was to find a great deal of hardship two years after his father died (at the tender age of four) The young boy developed a brain tumor and was essentially blind in both eyes for 10-12 years. Only after many years he managed to re-gain very limited sight in his own . As a songwriter, myself , I understand the delicacies of the proper lyric and music balance. Today is also the 72nd birthday of Sophia Loren-- still one of the world's most amazing actresses of all time to come! Wow! Its also the 82nd birthday of another singing star legend--her name is Gogi Grant. Wow a real trip down memory lane today!
