It never ceases to amaze me how many talented people from the Muskegon and West Michigan area have gone on to accomplish great things. Just this past weekend while out for dinner with some friends I found out about a man who helped create a lot of music that shaped my life...Bill Szymczyk. Bill was born in Muskegon and produced many of the Eagles classic albums such as Hotel California, The Long Run, One of These Nights and many more. He worked with so many other acts and song writers such as Quincy Jones and Carole King.
I also want to send out a great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Bill who was born on this date in 1943. I'm not sure where he is living these days but if you can tell him we wished him a Happy Birthday I would appreciate it. It would be so cool to talk to him about his experiences and to let him know how much his music has meant to me over the years.
If there are other local people like Bill Szymczyk who have had noteworthy accomplishments I would love to recognize them too. Simply contact me at Mark@107mus.com
