Wolfman Jack

Just finished reading Wolfman Jack's autobiography, published in 1995, just a couple of years before his death.

Any of us who were roaming The West in the late 1960's and throughout the 1970's well know Wolfman. Reading the book, though, was eye-opening to me, as it connected a lot of dots. You know, disc jockeys keep track of other disc jockeys on some level, so I knew a lot about Wolfman, already. But, reading the autobiography was just a lot of fun and explained a lot about what I already knew. I highly recommed Have Mercy!: Confessions of the Original Rock 'N' Roll Animal



Remember "Earth News" from the '70's? Here's the Earth News bio of Wolfman that is pretty accurate (click player button twice):

LAID BACK

NPR's Tom Moon wrote a nice short retrospective on Gregg Allman's Laid Back, one of my most favorite albums of all time. The interview includes links to full versions of "Midnight Rambler," "Please Call Home" and "These Days."
