Music meets the mobWhile not a household name, Bert Berns was the songwriter and producer behind a litany of hit singles in the 1960s (Twist and Shout, Piece of My Heart, Under the Boardwalk, and Brown-Eyed Girl). He also launched the careers of legends such as Van Morrison and Neil Diamond and produced some of the greatest soul music ever made. Born in the Bronx to Russian-Jewish immigrants, his meteoric rise from obscurity, and the heightened emotional pitch of his music, were propelled by a chronic heart condition that cut his life tragically short.
