Los Angeles - Hal David, who along with partner Burt Bacharach penned dozens of top 40 hits for a variety of recording artists in the 1960s and beyond, has died. He was 91.
David died of complications from a stroke on Saturday morning in Los Angeles, according to Jim Steinblatt, spokesperson for the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. David was a longtime member and former president of ASCAP.
Bacharach and David wrote many timeless tunes including "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," ''Close to You" and "That's What Friends Are For." They churned out hit music for movies and television.
Earlier this year the duo received the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song during a White House tribute concert attended by President Barack Obama.
