Jerry Heller and Elton John
Some people underplay their accomplishments. Other people exaggerate them. All Jerry Heller has to do is tell the truth.
The 66-year-old Heller's spent his life on the business side of the music business, from bringing Elton John to America, to co-founding Ruthless Records with rapper Eazy E... The guy who helped bring you Your Song was also partly responsible for Cop Killer and Straight Outta Compton.
KPCC's Adolfo Guzman-Lopez spoke with Heller about his new memoir, Ruthless.
