MYFOXNY.COM -

Burt Bacharach, legendary singer and composer, is out with a new memoir, 'Anyone Who Had A Heart.'

"I didn't want to do it originally. I'd rather live in the present and the future. Not looking back at what I had done. A friend of mine talked me into it, saying 'who's going to tell the stories... if it's not you?"

The eight time Grammy award winner and three time Oscar winner grew up in Forest Hills, Queens.

"I wasn't a happy kid. I was a pretty lonely kid," said Bacharach.

But success brought happiness.

"I'm very passionate about my work. You only have three or four minutes to make it perfect. There is no filler material," said Bacharach.
