And of course, Jerry Leiber. May he rest in peace.

Do you remember Ahmet Ertegun, head of Atlantic Records, who died five or six years ago? Mick Jagger used to call him Omelet. Which is either more or less funny if you consider that the guy died of complications from a back-stage fall at a Stones concert.

Some months prior to the accident, Jerry Leiber rerecorded, as a birthday gift to Ertegun, one of his hits with a new set of lyrics:

"It Had To Be Ahmet" by dbfly

Jerry Leiber, ladies and gentlemen.

It was Otis Redding who called him Omelet. Mick Jagger's not that clever.
