My heartfelt condolences to the family of Jerry Leiber, as well as to the friends who loved him. Deepest sympathies to Mike Stoller, his friend and partner for 60+ years. I have never met either of these gentlemen, but the Leiber/Stoller team was responsible for writing and/or producing so many of the recordings I grew up with, and their music is such an indelible part of life, that I feel as though I know them personally. Jerry Leiber has left behind a legacy that will outlive all of us, and the world is a richer place for his having been here. My thoughts are with the Leiber and Stoller families in their time of loss. Rest in peace, Mr. Leiber, and thank you.
