    RIP Jerry Leiber (of Leiber/Stoller, songwriters)

    Leiber and Stoller co-wrote Elvis' "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock", "Kansas City" which has been covered by a lot of artists, most of the Coasters' hits, "Stand by Me"...a truly wonderful legacy.

    I heard a tribute to him on the radio, not even realising who he was. It is amazing the amount of music he created.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
