Who Invented Rock & Roll?

Join the Michale Graves crew in their conversation with music legend Bruce Johnston. 
Bruce Johnston is an American singer, musician, Grammy Award winning songwriter, and music producer. His songs for The Beach Boys include “Tears in the Morning,” “Deirdre,” and “Disney Girls.” He served as a producer for The Beach Boys albums L.A. (Light Album) and Keepin’ the Summer Alive
Johnston is also known for his early 1960s singing collaborations with Terry Melcher as Bruce & Terry and with the surf band The Rip Chords, as well as for composing the 1976 Barry Manilow hit, “I Write the Songs.”
We will take a ride through rock and roll history and discuss Bruce’s involvement and experiences in the music industry from the mid 1950’s to modern day. Topics will span from performing with artists such as Ritchie Valens, Little Richard, The Everly Brothers, and Eddie Cochran to winning the Song of the Year Grammy for writing “I Write the Songs.” Bruce has also vocally collaborated with Pink Floyd (The Wall album) and Elton John (“Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Me”). He was rubbing elbows with some of music’s most famous celebrities from a very young age.
Come be a part of this very special, limited series. You will be ONE OF TEN exclusive interactive audience members as we discuss the career of an American music legend. We will let you peek behind the curtain as we discuss Bruce’s career and accomplishments. We will review and accept questions for Bruce as well as moderate the event. We have much to talk about and we are excited to share this with you! See you soon!
