I met Eddie Schwartz the first time in Hollywood in 1978. He had been signed by ATV Music who, at that time, was a major client of mine at Hollywood Central Recorders. ATV had flown Eddie into Hollywood to record a series of demos of songs he had written.
For some odd reason Eddie had one song that the powers that be at ATV absolutely "did not" want Eddie to record. That song was "Hit Me With Your Best Shot".
This interview tells the long road traveled by that tremendous hit and the results of Eddie's life from that point on.
The lesson is....If you believe in yourself, never give up.
An absolute "must' for any songwriter to hear.
