RIP – JERRY LEIBER


EXPIRED: 08/22/11 – Jerry Leiber, 78, and Mike Stoller wrote songs in high school. Within 3 years, Mike (music) and Jerry (lyrics) were the hottest in the biz, especially after Elvis bought “Hound Dog,” originally written for Big Mama Thornton, and made it his. More hits followed including ‘Stand By Me,’ ‘Jailhouse Rock,’ ‘Poison Ivy,’ ‘Spanish Harlem,’ ‘On Broadway,’ and ‘Stuck In The Middle With You.’
