Personal Quote:

Often I would have a start, two or four lines. [Mike Stoller] would sit at the piano and start to jam, just playing, fooling around, and I'd throw out a line. He would accommodate the line--metrically, rhythmically. See more »


He and his creative partner, Mike Stoller, met in Los Angeles when they were 17, and worked together until Jerry's death in 2011, at age 78. Their collaboration was detailed in their memoir, "Hound Dog: The Leiber & Stoller Autobiography" (2009), and their music was showcased in their Grammy-winning Broadway musical, "Smokey Joe's Cafe".
