“No Easy Way Out” by Robert Tepper
New Jersey native Robert Tepper, had some early success in the music-writing department as he paired with fellow singer Benny Mardones to write Mardones’ hit ballad “Into the Night,” which earned them a Grammy Awards nomination. In 1985, Tepper signed a recording contract with Scotti Brothers and moved to Los Angeles. Sylvester Stallone heard Tepper’s song “No Easy Way Out,” and liked it so much that he included it in the Rocky IV movie and soundtrack. It made the Top 40 charts, peaking at #22 on March 29, 1986.
Unfortunately Robert Tepper was unable to capitalize on this success as he released two solo albums for Scotti Bros. Records but both albums received little promotion from the label. He went on to join the classic hard rock group “Iron Butterfly” for a few years.
