Well, that’s it. Anton is gone, but we’re over halfway through so perhaps things aren’t all bad.

McKuen was twice-nominated for Oscars, first for the song “Jean” from the film “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” in 1970, which won him a Golden Globe, and then again in 1971 for his work on the animated film “A Boy Named Charlie Brown”; he also received a Grammy nomination for his work with the team that included Vince Guaraldi.
Born in Oakland, McKuen moved to Paris in the 1960s, where he wrote poetry before returning to the U.S. where he worked as a poet, singer and film composer in the late ’60s and throughout the 1970s. His hit songs “If You Go Away” and “Seasons in the Sun” (performed by Terry Jacks) were based on Jacques Brel works and he also translated other French songwriters into English.
