According to this interview, award-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch is not big on the joys of modern technology:
“For me, it’s 1956. I don’t have an iPod; I don’t have a computer,” he said. “I’ve been listening to the same music for 30 years – West Side Story, Gypsy. Until something better comes along, I’m very happy listening to that.”
Well I can't argue with his taste in music but I wonder if he carries a turntable with him wherever he goes? Or a reel-to-reel recorder? Because the first cassette deck wasn't introduced until 1963 - much less the eight-track or CD player.
And the original Broadway production of West Side Story opened in 1957. Gypsy made its debut two years later. So he's at least stuck in 1959 - when he would have been 15.
Okay, maybe he was exaggerating slightly. Maybe he's really living in the mid-1960s.
