Jerry Leiber - My Old Boss

At the interview he offered me a job right away. I was stunned. So I told him I could deny nothing to the man who wrote "You're gonna need an ocean/Of calamine lotion".

He wasn't the best man I ever worked for, but he wasn't the worst. He couldn't really help it, because he was kind of crazy, which he would readily admit.

RIP Jerry. We had a lot in common.
