The Songwriter’s Bible
My passion for music started in Fresno, California in the 1950’s. I started collecting singles (45’s) when I was 7 years old. The first records I owned included “All I Have To Do Is Dream” by The Everly Brothers, “Poor Little Fool” by Ricky Nelson, “Little Star” by The Elegants and “To Know Him Is To Love Him” by The Teddy Bears. Owning these records and hearing these songs had a profound, almost mystical impact on me as a child. I would sit in my bedroom and listen to them over and over again. It puzzled me that my friends weren’t moved by music in the same way that I was.
