Personal Quote:

[on composing for The Bears and I (1974)] Heck, I'm no Henry Mancini or Michel Legrand. I just play the guitar and write songs. I know I'm incapable of orchestrating an entire film.

It could be reasonably assumed that Henry was named after him, although his father was also named Henry John Deutschendorf and his paternal -grandfather was John Henry Deutschendorf. See more »
