Lorenz Hart(5) 〜‘I didn’t know what time it was’

May 06.2016

Lorenz Hart was well known the gay.

But Hart’s lyrics avoided references to homosexuality.

Around this time he looked at his future pessimistic, and had drunk wine every day.

Richard Rogers had always cared about his health.

Unfortunately their relationship had to be desolved for his death.
