"I worked with Warren a
couple of times at Westlake Studios, LA. As far as I remember we were
doing something for Barbra Streisand with Phil Ramone
producing. I can only say that we will miss a true vocal talent that comes one in a
lifetime. But in his recordings the legend will live on. He was a true professional who
always brought excitement into a song. We will be missed." Michael Sembello
