Moderated by Billboard senior writer Melinda Newman, the Expo provided an inside look at songwriting for musicians, producers and composers.

“I have a good pile about this high,” said Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum while lifting his hand to just above his waist. “And I have a shit pile this high,” he said raising his hand high above his head. “I have to fill up this pile until something good ends up over in that pile — let’s just say I have a lot of works in progress.”
