New York, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
Beverly Ross, songwriter behind Elvis Presley’s “The Girl of My Best Friend,” Roy Orbison’s “Candy Man,” and the smash hit “Lollipop” recorded by the Chordettes is featured in the August edition of “Now Dig This,” a popular UK magazine.
The four-page spread written by Stuart Colman tells some of the stories behind the songs from the illustrious career of one of Rock ‘N’ Roll’s pioneering female songwriters.
From her first hit, Bill Haley’s “Dim Dim the Lights (I Want Some Atmosphere)” written while still a teenager in high school, to her short lived artist career with Columbia Records, Beverly Ross spills her guts to Colman in this extensive, candid interview.
When asked about the title of her memoire, “I Was the First Woman Phil Spector Killed,” Ross explains that the name of her book comes from her betrayal at the hands of a young, ambitiously ruthless Phil Spector in his pre-Wall of Sound days. Spector, as well as other luminaries such as Barbra Streisand, are described in vivid detail in the tell-all book released earlier this year.
