Aerosmith and Foreigner Members Headed To Songwriter Hall of Fame

02/26/2013
.
Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry and Foreigner's Mick Jones and Lou Gramm lead the 2013 class for the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.

The hard rock duos will be inducted along with Eagles songwriting collaborator JD Souther, 60s hit maker Tony Hatch, and multi-genre songwriter Holly Knight who's credits include Tina Turner and Aerosmith's "Ragdoll. "

The induction will take place at a gala on June 13th in New York City at the Marriott Marquis Hotel.

Organizers sent over these details about each of this year's inductees:

Tony Hatch: Multifaceted British songwriter, producer, arranger, conductor and pianist Tony Hatch is credited for his musical contributions both in the UK and US, with his international hit for Garry Mills in 1960; "Look For A Star." The song launched Hatch's career and provided him with a platform to write and produce for hit artists on both sides of the Atlantic, including Bobby Rydell with "Forget Him," and The Searchers with "Sugar And Spice." Hatch's most significant relationship as a songwriter, arranger and producer was with Petula Clark, which yielded classic British Invasion pop hits including "Downtown," "I Know A Place" and "My Love."

He had huge success with Chris Montez and "Call Me," which launched the song as an album 'must' with covers later by legendary artists including Frank Sinatra, Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, George Shearing, Astrud Gilberto and Eliane Elias. Hatch continued to write songs with his wife at the time, singer Jackie Trent, which included her #1 UK hit "Where Are You Now." The duo also wrote Clark's "Don't Sleep In The Subway," "I Couldn't Live Without Your Love," "Colour My World," and "Sign Of The Times" and "Joanna" for Scott Walker. Hatch has also composed TV theme songs; most notably for the Australian soap Neighbours and the UK soap Emmerdale, now in its 40th year.

Mick Jones & Lou Gramm: Foreigner's legendary songwriting partners, Mick Jones and Lou Gramm, have together propelled an arsenal of ten multi-platinum albums and multiple Top 30 hits. The band is responsible for some of the greatest rock anthems of our time, including the worldwide #1 hit, "I Want To Know What Love Is".

Other iconic songs include "Feels Like The First Time," "Cold As Ice" and "Long, Long Way From Home" from their self-titled 1977 debut album. Major songs in the Jones and Gramm catalog include "Juke Box Hero," "Hot Blooded" and "Waiting For A Girl Like You."

A multi-talented and multi-dimensional "musician's musician," Jones has also written songs such as "Bad Love" with Eric Clapton and "Dreamer" with Ozzy Osbourne, and produced records for others including Billy Joel's Storm Front and Van Halen's 5150.

Holly Knight: Holly Knight has had a wild 36-year ride in the music business that ignited when she met songwriter/producer Mike Chapman with her band Spider in 1981. They penned Spider's single, "Better Be Good To Me," which music icon Tina Turner recorded six months later on her 1984 album Private Dancer. Knight's success continued when she wrote the chart-topping, "Love Is A Battlefield" and "Invincible" for Pat Benatar, "The Warrior" for Patty Smyth, "Change" for John Waite, "Baby Me" for Chaka Khan, "Never" for Heart and "Pleasure And Pain" for Divinyls. In total, Knight has written nine songs for Turner, including "The Best" and "Wildest Dreams," both signature songs for the legend.

She also wrote "Love Touch" for Rod Stewart, "Obsession" for Animotion, "Hide Your Heart" for KISS, "Rag Doll" with Aerosmith, "Space" for Cheap Trick and the list continues. Her songs have appeared in movies as varied as Thelma and Louise, Mad Max Beyond The Thunderdome, Stewart Little and Hot Tub Fantasy, and on TV shows such as American Idol, The Voice, 30 Rock, Family Guy, The Simpsons and South Park.

JD Souther: An architect of the Southern California sound and an influence on modern songwriting, JD Souther has written and co-written many Eagles hits including "Heartache Tonight," "Victim Of Love," "New Kid In Town," "Best Of My Love," Don Henley's "The Heart Of The Matter," and the Eagles hit from 2007, "How Long." Linda Ronstadt recorded ten of his songs, including "Faithless Love," "Simple Man, Simple Dream," and "Prisoner In Disguise." His hit "You're Only Lonely" reached the top ten followed by "Her Town, Too" with James Taylor.

He has written with Warren Zevon, Paul Williams, Burt Bacharach, Brian Wilson, Arthur Hamilton, Roy Orbison, Will Jennings, and Jackson Browne. His songs appear on more than 150 million records worldwide including Hugh Masekela, Bonnie Raitt, Glen Campbell, Crosby, Stills, & Nash, Najma Akhtar, George Strait, India Arie, Trisha Yearwood, and Bernadette Peters.

Steven Tyler & Joe Perry: As co-founding members of Aerosmith, America's greatest Rock & Roll band, the songwriting team of Steven Tyler and Joe Perry have sold more than 150 million albums worldwide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
