* NeverLearnedToRead: Not only could he not read or write music, he could only play in one key! He had a special piano built with what was essentially a giant capo if ever he needed to transpose something.

Irving Berlin (1888-1989) is, without a doubt, ''the'' father of modern American music, and one of the most prolific composers of the early and mid twentieth century. His music has become an integral part of American musical culture. It is almost impossible for anyone alive to have not heard a song he wrote. His songs include "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "Puttin' on the Ritz," [[Music/MerryChristmas "White Christmas"]], and "God Bless America."
