Man kunne mene, at 2020 var slemt nok, som det var, men nej, nu er Bent Fabricius-Bjerre også død 💔 Og Lone Dybkjær i sidste uge. Det dødsfald ramte mig virkelig, og hende kendte jeg ikke engang personligt. Jeg mindes kun, at vi mødtes en enkelt gang way back i forbindelse med et valgarrangement, hvor jeg skulle udspørge diverse politikere, og jeg ville ønske, at jeg havde nået at møde hende siden, så jeg kunne have overøst hende med komplimenter for alt, hvad hun har udrettet. Hende ville jeg gerne have kendt ❤️ Bent, derimod, er jeg her foreviget med i 2018. Billedet er fra Danish Rainbow Awards, hvor vi havde hinanden til bords, og som det tydeligt fremgår, var det en fornøjelse. Han var en vidunderlig, galant bordherre der diskede op med en parade af anekdoter fra sit liv, og jeg tænkte ikke et øjeblik over, at denne livfulde mand var mere end 50 år ældre end jeg, før han fortalte anekdoten om at være i 80erne og i 90erne og rejse rundt og optræde med sit klaverspil. “Når jeg træder op på scenen, kan jeg høre folk nede i salen sidde og sige ‘nej, se den gamle mand. Hvor er det flot, at han er her!’” fortalte han. “Flot ligefrem?” Han lo højt. “Ja, ja. Når jeg spiller temaet fra Matador, fælder de en tåre over, hvor rørende det er, at sådan en gammel mand som jeg sidder der og spiller”, sagde han. “Jeg kan også spille Alley Cat. Det er sådan set ligegyldigt, hvad det er. Resultatet er det samme”. Det var svært at vide, om jeg skulle grine eller fælde den tåre over den anekdote. I hvert fald husker jeg, at jeg forsøgte at forestille mig hvor bizart, det måtte være at ende i kategorien Rørende at du er til. Jeg er vildt glad for, at jeg nåede at møde denne helt særlige, talentfulde og strålende mand. Æret være hans minde ⭐️ #bentfabriciusbjerre Foto: Mesterfotograf Annette K. Nielsen

Alley Cat still remains to be one of his biggest achievements with winning the Grammy Award back in 1962 under the category of Best Instrumental. This is not all as the album on which the instrumental featured went on to sell over as many as1 million copies!

The Man Is Behind The Hit 1962 Tune Alley Cat.

Apart from winning the prestigious Grammy awards, the musical legend went on to be honored with a lifetime achievement award in 2017 from the HARPA Nordic Film Composers. We all will surely miss such a gifted artist who is now in a better place.

The man has been an icon with great composition in his list of achievements  many musical artists have mourned over the loss of such a  legend. We sure will miss him . He will always be alive through his artistic creations and those compositions will make him immortal in the world of music. May his soul rest in eternal peace and may he be in a better place . Such a deep.loss will be deeply mourned by his family and closed ones.
