One of the most successful songwriters in rock and roll history, having penned two #1 hits, a Grammy winner and an Oscar nomination. On top of this, he’s also written hit songs with The Ides of March, .38 Special, Sammy Hagar, Survivor, Rocky III & IV (“Eye of The Tiger”), The Doobie Brothers, Blackhawk, Lynyrd Skynyrd, REO Speedwagon, Cinderella, Brian Wilson, Anthony Gomes, Dennis DeYoung (Styx), along with the theme song for the Chicago Cubs and two best-selling books

Jim talks about the many unlikely events that all randomly occurred which allowed him to write his first #1 song, “Vehicle.” The kicker is, the opening verse was inspired by an anti-drug government pamphlet, his stoner friend brought to school… the secret behind Jim’s 47 year marriage… thinking you have all the answers when you don’t… the pressure of trying to put out hit after hit… dealing with the loss of his dad, along with dozens of really cool and interesting stories that by Jim’s own admission… he has literally never even discussed before.
