Sid Bernstein, I first met you through the publicist you hired for that historical Beatles tour, Charlie Comer. To witness you two giants talk biz of how you two were able to survive extraordinary circumstances was amazing to hear. According to Charlie, I looked like a deer caught in the headlights! You taught the hustle and bustle, cut-throat world of music how to maintain one's dignity, respect for others, respect for self, never lose focus of family, keep having fun! You shared your heart so easily. What a gift. We are all blessed because of you teaching us to always enjoy the moment. Blessings to your beautiful, loving family.

The last place I saw Sid Bernstein, he was standing alone, unrecognized by the gathering hundreds of people who were drawn to the Central Park Bandshell, the late afternoon of December 9, 1980. A group of inventive fans had removed the panel from a lamp post and plugged in their instruments and amps to sing their homage of sorrow. The music continued as the winter sun was setting, and the Mall filled with hundreds more. Suddenly, the sky opened as if a giant with a down-filled pillow had decided to cover an acre of land with a swirling blizzard of fluffy white, angels' wings feathers on the mourning children below.
The Fagin-gloved players played on and the voices which fill Strawberry Fields in today's generation continued.
The blizzard lasted two or three minutes and was gone.
I turned and headed north to the 72nd Street roadway.

There, standing unrecognized by the gathered mourners, was a solo figure: Sid Bernstein.
I was a "youngster" in the music business, but we recognized each other. I stood with him for a while, both maintaining silence. We nodded, shook hands and I left, glad to know that I had shared a miraculous "witnessing" with someone who understood the miraculous miracle that John had shared with us.

Sid was a mensch of mensches in a business filled with mamzas.

Send our love, you will be missed.

What I remember most was the big smile he had whenever I ran into him on the street! He had a way of making you feel that he was really glad to see you.

Everyone Loved Sid and so did I. We met early on; his father was our family tailor on Tremont Avenue. When I was a teenager Sid took me to concerts at Lewisohn Statdium and then for an egg cream on 41st and Seventh. He was always kind, sweet and a one of a kind idealist and pop music lover. Somewhere in heaven he will be putting "i'm a Billy Fields Fan" stickers on lampposts. Rest in Peace and condolences to your beautiful family.

Thank you for bringing us the Beatles. Your vision helped the '60's make the impact that it did. Condolences to your family, friends, colleagues and admirers.

I've met him twice at celebrity events. He was a nice man and I'm sorry to hear of his passing.
