Piece of My Heart: The Bert Berns Story

$31.50-$99.50

Bert Berns was born in New York in 1929 and died tragically of a heart attack at just 38 years of age. But in his short career, Berns left an indelible mark on popular music; he made fifty-one pop chart singles in seven years and became one of the most successful songwriters of the 1960s. Piece of My Heart tells his remarkable story, once dubbed by Rolling Stone "one of the great untold stories of rock and roll," through his hit songs, which include "Twist and Shout," "Tell Him," "I Want Candy," “Hang On Sloopy,” "Cry, Baby," and many more. - See more at: http://www.oandmco.com/blog/entry/piece-of-my-heart-to-open-in-new-yprk-this-summer#sthash.21og8yH4.dpuf
