California Copyright Conference Event: Hound Dog! An Evening with Leiber and Stoller
Sherman Oaks, Calif. (MuseWire) – Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller are the legendary songwriting godfathers of rock and roll! They wrote some of the greatest, most memorable songs of all time including Elvis Presley hits like â€˜Jailhouse Rock,' â€˜Treat Me Nice' and â€˜Hound Dog' and a string of other classics including the Coasters', â€˜YaketyYak' and â€˜Poison Ivy,' Ben E. King's timeless hit â€˜Stand by Me' and the Drifters â€˜On Broadway.' In 1985, Jerry and Mike were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame followed by their 1987 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their Broadway smash “Smokey Joe’s Cafe: The Songs of Leiber and Stoller” was dubbed “the longest running musical review in Broadway history.”
Leiber and Stoller's joint memoir â€˜Hound Dog,' written with David Ritz, was published by Simon & Schuster on June 9, 2009, and Ritz will be interviewing Mike and Jerry in a spirited, in-depth discussion with these American musical icons.
David Ritz has written books with Smokey Robinson, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, among others. He is a 4-time winner of the Ralph J. Gleason Award for music book of the year.
