  Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jerry Leiber (born April 25, 1933) and Mike Stoller (born March 13, 1933) are among the most important songwriters and music producers in post-World War II popular music.
After school, Stoller played drums and Leiber worked in a record store and, when they met, they found they shared a love of blues and rhythm and blues.
Their later songs often had lyrics more appropriate for pop music, and their combination of rhythm and blues with pop lyrics revolutionized pop and rock and roll.

But a major source of Leiber and Stoller's success and power was their ability to bridge both racial barriers and musical genres.

What joy it must have given those two ‘kids’ Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller knowing that their music, their creativity, their art was being heard all over the world and even by a little Jewish kid living in the slums of East London trying to tune his transistor radio into Radio Luxemburg.
They have given so much pleasure to so many millions of people but now, as perhaps a swansong (they are both in their seventies), it seems they are trying to destroy their own musical legacy by denying the world the joy of hearing their songs from “Jailhouse Rock” performed on a London stage.
Leiber and Stoller have sent out a worldwide Press Release on PR Newswire condemning the producers of “Jailhouse Rock the Musical” for so naming the Musical that does not include their songs, claiming it is misleading the public.

 Those Hoodlum Friends - The Coasters´ Story
Spark owners were Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, two whites who had grown up in racially-mixed neighborhoods and knew RandB as few whites did.
An important factor in the success of The Coasters is their close association with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, the songwriting team responsible for so many of the biggest hits in the "big beat" idiom...
And Stoller's piano is invariably the best thing on records that get the most out of musicians as diverse as Barney Kessel, Mickey Baker, Willie Dixon, Panama Francis, and a young guitarist named Phil Spector, who would live to take what he learned here too far.

Dedicated to the blues and Southern R&B, the pair wrote prolifically throughout the early '50s, trying to remain as authentic to the music as possible.
Through a meeting with Lester Sill of Modern Records they were able to get several of their songs recorded, such as "Hound Dog" and "Kansas City." But while they were writing in a traditional blues vein, it was Stoller whose piano licks and melodies made the songs recognizable beyond the standard 12-bar format.
After accepting a job at Atlantic Records the duo moved to New York and began producing groups such as the Coasters and the Drifters, as well as writing some of the most loved songs in the pop and R&B canon.
