A wild insider's ride with one of music's most notorious journalists.

Here are 15 music profiles, guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat:
  • Leiber & Stoller, the white fathers of R&B and rock and roll, who possess what is perhaps the last great untold story of the music biz. They created the American songbook of the '50s and '60s, led by Elvis, the Coasters, and the Drifters.

  • Doc Pomus, the only white blues singer in America making records in the 1940s. Half of the hit songwriting team of Pomus-Shuman during the Brill Building era, Doc had the biggest heart in the music business.

  • A sad, comic-tragic romance with the Ronettes' Ronnie Spector, dubbed an ìoldieî once she left her teens.
