Steve Barri

For four decades (and counting), Steve Barri has been a major force in popular music, spanning the decades as a successful producer and songwriter, and also one of the more enduring tastemakers of the 1960s -- his name is associated with some of the most beloved and heavily played records of that decade, though his credits and successes trail out right into the new century. Barry McGuire, Johnny Rivers, Three Dog Night, the Grass Roots, the James Gang, Steppenwolf, Jim Croce, Rufus, Steely Dan, Tommy Roe, and the Four Tops are just a few of the performers for whom Barri's abilities as a judge of talent, or his own talents as a producer or songwriter, have proved essential at various times.
