About Neil Sedaka
An excellent songwriter, Neil Sedaka came from a doo-wop background (working with an early version of the Tokens), sharpened his skills with Julliard training, and enjoyed much success with a number of pre-Beatles era hits. Though the British Invasion stopped the flow of hits, he re-entered the charts in the mid-'70s with a brace of chart-toppers that extended into the following decade. A major influence on Elton John, Sedaka continued performing and recording into the 2020s.
