John Herndon Mercer

aka Johnny Mercer. Lyricist, song-writer, singer and founder of Capitol Records. For a company that I had heard a fair bit about, I knew absolutely nothing of this gentleman. Wiki says that he composed over fifteen hundred songs [signs of a prolific career] and won four Academy awards.

He wrote some good and enduring stuff Ayush. A fine tribute
One of those greats from "tin pan alley" I couldn't name a song he wrote off the top of my head but I bet if you looked on the labels of many well known records his name would be there!
He looked a happy guy,Ayush.
Wonderful statue - and terrific capture of him!
Like golden leather.
A great statue isn't it.

I have never heard of him, so I am joining you in that way smile 1500 songs are a lot. Maybe I have heard one of them.

I have to say that I never heard of the man, maybe he was always kind of in the back...
Love the golden look of this statue.
Beautifully lit, Ayush. Really enhances the happy feel of the statue.

Did you get a chance to visit the Mercer house while you were there?
