Gershwin's compositions spanned both popular and classical genres, and his most popular melodies are widely known. Among his best known works are the orchestral compositions Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris, as well as the opera Porgy and Bess.  He’s the richest composer of all time (when you adjust for inflation), so what did he do differently? In The Sunday Times this weekend, you'll find this year's edition of the Rich List - one composer who most certainly would've appeared on it in his day was the great George Gershwin - and this is why: George Gershwin is one of the eternal legends of American music. He was a prolific writer, (some say he wrote up to six songs a day) and his music has been enjoyed by generations of music lovers the world over. His work ethic certainly kept the money flowing in, but it doesn’t quite explain the massive fortune that he accrued in his short life. You see, Gershwin wasn’t just rich, he was filthy rich. He's been ranked in several surveys as the highest grossing composer of all time (adjusted for inflation), streets ahead of Verdi, Rossini, Haydn and even Handel. So what was the magic formula which led to such wealth? Firstly, Gershwin’s music was outrageously popular. In 1919 his first big hit, ‘Swanee’ sold more than 2 million recordings and 1 million copies of sheet music. His folk opera ‘Porgy and Bess’ was also an instant hit, touring non-stop for three years after its initial run.

He put out his first album, Just as I Am, in 1971, which featured the hit "Ain't No Sunshine." More hits soon followed, including "Lean on Me" and "Lovely Day." Withers teamed up with Grover Washington Jr. for the 1981 smash "Just the Two of Us" before retiring from performing later that decade. Early Life and Career Born on July 4, 1938, in Slab Fork, West Virginia, singer-songwriter Bill Withers is known for such hits as "Ain't No Sunshine" and "Lean on Me." He is the youngest of six siblings who grew up in a small coal mining town. As a child, Withers had a terrible stutter, a speech problem that plagued him well into adulthood. Withers lost his father A miner, when he was only 13 years old. Four years later, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served for nine years. Withers moved to Los Angeles, where he started penning songs and making his own demo recordings. He later explained to Billboard that he started writing his own material because "I couldn't find any songs that didn't sound like all the others." To fund his musical efforts, he worked on building toilets for airplanes. His songs eventually attracted the attention of Clarence Avant at Sussex Records, and Withers landed a recording contract with the label... read more [...]
