He wrote a metric ****-ton of songs for everyone else, too. TGP wouldn't let me copy/paste the list because it's too long. Kiss. Krokus, Tina Turner, Aerosmith, and "What About Love", made into a gigantic hit by Heart.Jim Vallance co-wrote most of Bryan Adams songs.
Well, like Paul once said something like "I listened to a lot music when I was growing up, on the BBC. So my hard drive got filled up with a lot of information. Plus, I'm genius."Even tho’ it’s not really publicly known, The Beatles wouldn’t be where there at without George Martin and the songwriting/production team behind them.
How do you go from playing covers in dive in Germany to writing infectious pop songs adored by millions?
Theres some overall strangeness overall going on in the mid 80’s through the early/mid 90’s with ACDC. I’m curious as well, but most likely it’s behind the iron curtain of their management and marketing team and we’ll never know. Similar to ZZ Top...we get glimpses, but never the whole thing.Right, even assuming he wrote lyrics/melodies on any of back in black or subsequent albums, it doesn’t make sense to me that a more than adequate songwriter would all of the sudden stop writing. Not only that, the songs really didn’t change all that much.
Stones did the same thing. And The Beatles were writing before they got signed (granted not earth shaking stuff, but doing the craft) and my understanding is that with the Stones, they realized that writing was where the action is, and just started doing it. Unless someone believes their stuff was written by someone else. And all the other bands? Writing is a skill that can be learned by working on it, just some people are better at it than others, but it is not so much hard as hard work.So he says.
From covers to finely crafted pop songs
