Tremendously talented. Too bad he couldn't be available for the "Jailhouse Rock" shoot. His partner Mike Stoller does appear, most notably as backing Elvis on piano in both the studio sequence for "Treat me nice" and, in the final scene, as he plays it during "Young and beautiful".

I agree, Jessica - what a great song writing partnership!

Loved every one of their songs listed in the article, along with everyone I've heard...

Thankfully, as with Elvis, it's a great loss; but we'll always have the music...it was magic
