To Bacharach, Retiring from Music "Is Like Dying"



(p. 6B) NEW YORK (AP) -- At age 90, Burt Bacharach hasn't lost faith in the power of music.

"Music softens the heart, makes you feel something if it's good, brings in emotion that you might not have felt before," he said. "It's a very powerful thing if you're able to do to it, if you have it in your heart to do something like that."


. . .


Bacharach says he has no plans to stop writing or performing. He contributes music to a new album by Elvis Costello, a longtime admirer with whom Bacharach has worked with before, and he continues to tour.

"You can throw up your hands and say, 'I can't do this anymore,' but it's what I do. I'm not just going to stop and retire, that is like dying, you know."
