IAmA Grammy Award Winning songwriter, Jim Peterik, that co-wrote "Eye of the Tiger." AMA
I am hanging out today to answer questions on songwriting, rock n' roll, and anything else you might want to know from me. Probably most known for my work as a founding member of Survivor and The Ides of March, but I've also worked with bands like .38 Special, REO Speedwagon, Brian Wilson, and Cheap Trick.
Other than music, I wrote the book "Songwriting for Dummies" but won't point fingers at anyone here!
I have posted proof that I am really Jim Peterik on my Twitter: https://twitter.com/#!/jimpeterik/

Might take a break to record during the day but I’ll do my best to answer your questions for the next few hours!
UPDATE: This is fantastic. Going to record some acoustic tracks but I will be back in 30 minutes or so to answer more questions.
UPDATE #2: Thanks for all the questions today. Need to get back to recording today - so I think I am going to call it. Was a great 4 hours with you Reddit and hope to be back!
This was a rewarding experience, Reddit! For anyone who wants to stay in touch or up to date - I am available through my Facebook Page and my website. I share my music and concert footage on Facebook.
