Passings: Songwriters Jerry Leiber Dies At 78 and R&B Legend Nick Ashford Dies At 69

Wow, two classic composers. As half of Leiber and Stoeller, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoeller wrote such classics as "Stand By Me," "Hound Dog," "Yakety Yak," "Love Potion #9" and as producers, hits like "Stuck In The Middle With You."

Nick Ashford and his wife, Valerie Simpson wrote Motown classics like "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "You're All I Need to Get By," as well as his own hits like "Solid."
