Gone, but not forgotten… Jerry Leiber August 28, 2011Posted by WorldbyStorm in Culture.
Jerry Leiber, one part of legendary duo Leiber and Stoller, died this week.
Some great great songs in their songbook. It was covers such as these where I first encountered their music. These covers aside, which may not be to everyone’s taste[!], they wrote some fantastic stuff. If people know of other covers feel free to put them in comments…
Jailhouse Rock – ZZ Top
Love Potion #9 – Tygers of Pan Tang
Trouble – Gillan [an horrific and entirely unwarranted appearance of DLT at the start of that - apologies]
And something a little softer, this fine version of Ruby, Baby by Donald Fagen on 1982’s The Nightfly.
