Marty's Musings - Marty Lacker talks
Over the course of a unique career that stretches back to the 1960s, Paul Williams has been and is a songwriter, singer, actor, a recovering alcoholic and recovery advocate, and not least the president/chairman of ASCAP, a role he’s held since 2009 and for which he was recently elected to a fifth term.

He’s also enjoyed, as he puts it, a truly remarkable “third act” in his career, which includes winning a Grammy in 2014 for his work on Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” and, most recently, a brief and memorable cameo as a corrupt cop/illegal arms dealer (SPOILER ALERT: who is quickly shot by Jamie Foxx’s character) in “Baby Driver.” The role is startling to anyone who knows him and doesn’t know it’s coming, not only because the diminutive Williams is apparently portraying the most well-dressed, erudite and loquacious corrupt cop/illegal arms dealer in history, but because the character’s lines sound like things Williams himself would say.
