Interview Clip # 12 With Holly Knight
April 10, 2020 – There’s a lot of big artists who didn’t write their own hits. Elvis being the biggest example. We have Chuck Negron formerly of Three Dog Night on this channel a year ago and they didn’t write their own hits. Tina Turner has written tunes but as a solo act, she’s not known for writing her own hits. Many have filled that gap including Terry Britten and Holly Knight’s longtime songwriting partner Mike Chapman Just to name a few. We chatted with Holly about a subject we’ve already touched on with her – respect for songwriters.
