Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Beverly Ross' book is a delightful history of her life in the music industry beginning in the 1950's and continuing on. She tells enlightening, "insider" tales about the people who moved that industry. Also, nevitably, her book tells of the rise of Rock and Roll, as Beverly was one of the first songwriters to write in that idiom. Interspersed with her musical "adventures", she tells us of her personal life and its impact on her career, with serious inspiring insights into her thought processes and decisions. It's truly a wonderful book and well worth reading

Format: Paperback
Great book by Beverly Ross - I enjoyed the stories of her in New York, the relationships of the business, her openess in the stories! If you are in the music business - you will love the book! If you are not in the music business, you will love it - stories behind how the songs were written, the politics of the music business and Beverly tells mistakes she made in the business.
The first song to crossover formt he Pop Charts" (traditionally with white artists only) to the R&B charts ( traditionally with black artists only) was a song that Bev wrote and the story of what a difference to the artist - Bill Haley!
Order the book today!!!

Format: Paperback
Beverly Ross wrote many of the famous early rock-n-roll hits still heard on the radio: Lollipop, Candyman, Judy's Turn to Cry, etc. The foreshadowing of Phil Spector's later infamous crime is eerie. Her autobiography is a compelling page-turner & fascinating must-read.

Beverly Ross is truly an empress of songwriting! She has paved the way for countless artists, musicians and songwriters.
Classic, candid and insightful, delivered with love and appreciation for the art and struggle of songwriting. Ross is one of music's most precious & groundbreaking talents, immerse yourself in "I Was The First Woman Phil Spector Killed!"
