Arik Einstein Colleagues Praise Him as "The Real Star"

Singer Ariel Zilber, an acclaimed singer in his own right, praised his former band-mate Arik Einstein who passed away unexpectedly Tuesday night at the age of 74. "When we established the Tamouz band in 1973 along with Shalom Hanoch, he was actually the spiritual master," Zilber stated. "He urged us all the time to practice and asked us to come to the studio. He made ​​us stars, even though he was the real star," Zilber recalled.
