Quotes & Highlights

Watch the video for “MacArthur Park” by Jimmy Webb.

Description

To say that Jimmy Webb is one of the last of a breed would imply that there is or ever was anyone quite like him. The man who gave the world what has been called “the first existential country song” (“The Highwayman”) and confounded generations of radio listeners with the brilliance of a lyric about a cake left out in the rain (“MacArthur Park”); who has topped the country, disco and pop music charts with a list of artists astounding in its diversity; and remains a trailblazer among songwriters 50 years after his first hit; now brings his multi-platinum playlist on the road in an intimate evening of songs and stories not to be missed.

At 66,Webb looks back on his days as a Midwestern teen navigating fame and fortune in Los Angeles with vignettes of a music industry coming of age, infused with an unexpected sense of humor from the songwriter who made his biggest impressions on the charts with ruminations on love, loss and longing.
