Event Description

Rock musician Lou Reed called him one of the greatest songwriters in history and Bob Dylan admired him so much he once asked him to write some lyrics for him.

Doc Pomus’ life seemed tailor-made for a Hollywood movie. He was the son of poor Jewish immigrants and was crippled by polio. Yet, he became a successful celebrity, got addicted to gambling, lost everything and then got his life back on track.

Born Jerome Felder, Doc Pomus wrote or co-wrote over 1,000 songs including “This Magic Moment,” “Little Sister,” “Sweets for my Sweet,” “Viva Las Vegas” and “Save the Last Dance for Me.” His songs were recorded by Elvis Presley, The Drifters, Andy Williams, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Dion and the Belmonts, The Coasters, Joe Turner and several others. In his prime, Doc Pomus had 13 Top 10 songs in one year. He was nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, and the first white person inducted to The Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame. (1 hr. 38 min.)
