Albert Hammond and Josh Groban

Albert Hammond 2005

Albert Hammond in 2005

Think about Albert Hammond and my generation immediately starts humming "seems it never rains in Southern California" or "free electric band" but did you know that since those heady days of pop stardom, Hammond has been a prolific songwriter?

Quite by accident, I noticed a lovely song on Josh Groban's debut CD, Alejate, was co-penned by Albert Hammond & Marti Sharron (although his website also credits Claudia Brant). He has a newsletter you can get via his homepage, and a new album and shows coming in May 2005. Hey, Albert, thanks for the happy memories of 1972 and 1973.
