Jerry Leiber dead at 78 (New York Times)

Lyricist half of the greatest songwriting team of early rock and roll, maybe never topped by anyone but Lennon and McCartney. "Hound Dog", "On Broadway", "Stand By Me", "Poison Ivy", "Yakety Yak", "There Goes My Baby", "Kansas City", "Jailhouse Rock", "Ruby Baby", and many more.

There's an episode of What's My Line where Leiber and Stoller were the guests; the panel were horribly condescending about rock and roll music--they were asked if they would ever consider trying to write some "serious music"--and they handled themselves very well.

He's one of those guys you never knew, but enjoyed his work. Writing a song is a bitch to do, if it wasn't everybody would have a number one song. RIP.

Since I am one of the "old" farts, I beg to differ. Many people my age are very well aware of Leiber and Stoller. But agin it's probably my age. They wrote some great stuff.
