When Judd Apatow needed under-appreciated rockers for his Knocked Up sequel, he immediately thought of Parker, who just happened to be getting his band The Rumour back together.
Steven Tyler of Aerosmith
Tyler talks about his true love: songwriting. How he identifies the beauty in a melody and turns sorrow into art.
You may not recognize his name, but you will certainly recognize Peter Lord's songs. He wrote the bevy of hits from Paula Abdul's second album, Spellbound, plus a collection of other classics for the likes of Aftershock, Ali and Goodfellaz.
Graham Bonnet (Alcatrazz, Rainbow)
Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai were two of Graham's co-writers for some '80s rock classics.
