He produced concerts for Melissa Manchester, Ben Vereen, Lorna Luft, Diana Ross, Mitzi Gaynor and Pamela Myers.

Here's a great video of his life. First time I've seen it.



Bill Dyer became an Animal Activist in 1980. I spoke with him at animal services commission meetings, zoo commission meetings, Los Angeles City Council, public safety, Beverly Hills City Council, press conferences about Fur Free WeHo, the senseless killing of the young mountain lion in Santa Monica... Bill was everywhere helping cats, dogs, ground squirrels, bunnies, elephants, mountain lions, circus animals, zoo animals, animals for consumption, Kapparot... I remember my first Kapparot protest in 2006. He said he did that for years and they kept killing the chickens so he gave up. I tried for a few years as well then I got burned out. Finally a Jewish Rabbi and a few other groups got together and now fewer Temples are killing chickens in the LA. Progress. Maybe by the time I die they won't be killing chickens for Kapparot.
