I can be quite obsessive about music, and in particular great songs and
I am a great fan of Holland, Dozier and Holland, the writers and
producers of many of the classic Motown hits.
I also loved all of the hits produced and written by Gamble and Huff for

I admire anyone who can craft great songs, such as Lennon and McCartney,
the Bee Gees, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Bacharach and David,
Carole King, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen.
I dream of being able to emulate my heroes, by creating a classic song
that will capture the imagination of generations.
