Nashville, TN (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
Beverly Ross, songwriter of “Lollipop” by the Chordettes, “Judy’s Turn to Cry,” and other charting songs by Elvis Presley and Roy Orbison among others will have a book signing at Nashville’s Two Old Hippies on June 18th at 6PM.
The iconic songwriter and former Columbia Records recording artist, Beverly Ross has penned a salacious tell all memoire dishing the dirt on Tin Pan Alley’s darlings including Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil, Carole King, and even the King, Elvis himself.
The feisty New Yorker relocated to Nashville in the mid 80s following the re-release of her ’60s B-side to Roy Orbison’s “Cryin’” titled “Candy Man” by duo Mickie Gillie and Charly McLain which earned her a BMI Top 10 award.
Her autobiography in essays titled I Was the First Woman Phil Spector Killed details her trials and tribulations as a struggling egomaniacal twenty something in the dawn of Rock ‘N’ Roll era.
Humorous and witty, the book is Beverly’s first hand account of what really went on in those early Brill Building days – at least according to her.
The Two Old Hippies event was organized by Doak Turner of Nashville Muse and will include an interview and reading from the book.
