  ABOUT THE AUTHOR: The history of rock ’n’ roll would be incomplete without the innumerable contributions of NEIL SEDAKA. Sedaka began studying music at the age of nine, and later catapulted to stardom with hits such as "Oh Carol," "Calendar Girl," "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen," and especially "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do."
