Happy Birthday to Gary Wright



I love this song....it takes me to an exact moment in time, at an exact location...and each time I happen to be driving on that road, on that exact sharp curve above Pacific Coast Hwy. in Laguna Beach - this song immediately begins "playing" in my mind.

thanks, Gary, for writing such a beautiful song for so many people to enjoy all these years.

I remember the song "I really wanna know you" a classic of my school years

That is still one of my all-time favorite songs.

Had a great interview with Gary back in late March (http://tiny.cc/AcS0F ). Interesting to learn that "Dream Weaver" was one of the last songs recorded during those sessions after asking the band what song they wanted to work on. He decided to go crazy on the technology side and throw everything into it believing the song wouldn't make the album.

It's good to see that not only was he wrong but that just hearing it takes you to another place. B)
