Don’t know Bert Sommer? You’re not alone.
The first time I heard him I thought, “Oh, this guy must have been some huge artist that I somehow never heard of. Shame on me.” Nope. Sommer was a very talented singer who was ground up by the entertainment industry and spit out of its backside (if backsides can be said to spit).
How did he go from a standing ovation at Woodstock to dying forgotten at age 41? Read all about it on Diffuser.
