Viva Doc Pomus

As Rock 'n' Roll characters go, Doc Pomus ranks high. A big man with big stories and a big catalog of late 50's-mid-60's classics, he finally gets a book of his own with Lonely Avenue by Alex Halberstadt (Da Capo). I wish the book focused more on his music, and the lack of discography is inexcusable. But until someone does it better it will do. To those who scream sellout everytime someone gets paid by the Man, it was encouraging to read that Pomus wasn't afraid to pimp himself out to pay bills.
