Live Ledge #29: West Memphis 3/Jerry Leiber

It's been a very eventful week for music fans. Birthdays included Keith Moon, Joe Strummer, Elvis Costello, Jeff Tweedy, Moe Tucker,, Gene Simmons. We celebrate all of these special days, and also offer a lengthy celebration of the West Memphis 3, who were FINALLY released from prison after spending 18 years on controversial charges that had more to do with dress and music taste than any specific evidence.
The music world also lost legendary songwriter Jerry Leiber this past Monday. Leiber was responsible, primarily with his songwriting partner Mike Stoller, for classics such as "Hound Dog", "Jailhouse Rock", "Kansas City", "Stand By Me", and so many more. His career is celebrated with great covers by the likes of the Supersuckers, Graham Parker, Paul Revere & the Raiders,, Cassius Clay!
