TRUTH !!
America's most famous composer of popular music could neither read nor write
music; he composed his music by ear, and hired someone to write down the
music. He composed on the piano, but could only play in the key of F-sharp,
so he bought a special piano that could mechanically transpose the keys. He
was only married twice; his first wife died six months after they were wed,
but his second marriage lasted 63 years. Berlin wrote dozens of songs still
popular today, including "White Christmas" and "God Bless America".
