About Ben Weisman

  • Ben Weisman (November 16, 1921 – May 20, 2007) was an American composer who wrote more songs recorded by Elvis Presley (fifty seven) than any other songwriter.
  • The Mad Professor as Weisman was nicknamed by Presley, worked with Presley from 1956 ("First in Line") to 1971 ("Change of Habit").
  • Their early association (1957–62) produced many of the most powerful rockers and poignant ballads in Presley's repertoire, including "Got a Lot o' Livin' to Do", "Follow That Dream", "Rock-A-Hula Baby", "Crawfish", "As Long as I Have You", "Pocketful of Rainbows" and "Fame and Fortune".
