R.I..P Jerry Lieber who died yesterday at 78. With songwriting partner Mike Stoller, he wrote songs for numerous artists. Most famous of all their compositions are "Jailhouse Rock" and "Hound Dog", both big hits for one Elvis Presley that you may have heard of, and "Stand By Me", written with Ben. E. King. But that's only the tip of the iceberg. The Clovers' big 1959 hit "Love Potion No. 9" is another of many classics written by the pair.
