Shelley Haims Of Pied Piper Died This Morning 28 Nov 2012 magazine cover

After a long illness Shelley Haims passed away in hospital in California this morning. I learnt the news as I was just finishing the first CD of Pied Piper productions that we licensed from him and his business partner in Pied Piper Jack Ashford. Shelley had a long career in the music business, starting out in his native Ohio in the 1950s.

 

A song he wrote with Perry Stevens 'We Go Together' was a hit for the Moonglows in 1956 and for Jan & Dean 4 years later. The forthcoming CD will feature a Detroit soul version of the song by the Cavaliers.

 

Shelley co-wrote several Pied Piper songs under the alias Randy Scott. Prior to Pied Piper he worked at Golden World and on Super Sonic Productions for labels such as Sport, Sir-Rah and Boss.

 

I was able to convey through his daughter Lynn our admiration for his work only last week and they were both very happy that those songs meant so much to us.
