Bob: Thank you for the great website! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Bob:I am so glad that you and others are active in keeping Ritchies memory going.
With that here is another question for you if you don't mind. Is it true that Ritchie used like 30 takes or more to get his music right, was it Ritchie or someone else that wanted that many takes?
You are very welcome! As for Ritchie using alot of
takes to record his music...mostly Bob Keane insisted
on all the takes and retakes. Ritchie for the most part, did much of the recording in our bedroom! He
just locked the door and rocked out! Once when I was
locked out, I whistled to get him to open the door and
today you can hear my whistle on "Hurry Up"! What a
guy! Hope to see you again...Bob
