When those of us born in 1952 turned 15 (or were about to turn 15) and the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper (including McCartney’s “When I’m Sixty-Four”), actually being 64 was just an incomprehensible abstraction. Well times change: here’s my live cover of the classic song (with background vocals, bass, drums, and organ added) that I’ve just posted on YouTube to celebrate my 64th birthday.
Terrific! Great cover! and LIVE!
A very happy birthday to you, Jon!!!!!
We’ve been on a major house purge of 35 years of accumulated stuff. I just came across an autograph album from Trinity School graduation (didn’t see that on your cv) and read your message. Though I knew u were smart this was nonetheless ridiculously mature for a 6th grader:”Good luck in 7th grade and in all the years to come”. Naturally I googled and there was your amazing, accomplished life. Congrats on it all especially the music! Great cover on 64; after hearing that I’m removing it from my repertoire.
BTW: I was also at MIT 75-76 and 2/3 of my kids graduated Cornell. One is a land use atty in nyc. Best wishes in all the years come!
And hi to Jess slots: Billy has an entry in the album! Jeff Bernstein
As it turns out, I’ve kept my Trinity School autograph book, and this is what you wrote in it: “Dear Johnny, A friend in need is a friend indeed. Your enemy, Jeff Bernstein.” But no hard feelings.
