Liza Minnelli on the passing of Marvin Hamlisch: “Marvin Hamlisch and I have been best friends since I was 13 years old. He arranged my first album, my second album, the songs for Judy Garland & Liza Minnelli at the London Palladium and just about everything else.

He was one of the funniest people I knew. I will miss his talent, our laughter & friendship, but mostly I will miss Marvin. My heart is with his wife Terre always.

I have lost my first lifelong best friend, and sadly we have lost a splendid, splendid talent.”
