Jerome ‘Doc’ Pomus was one of the world’s greatest songwriters. He wrote million sellers for Ray Charles, The Drifters, Joe Turner, Elvis, The Coasters, Dion and The Belmonts, Andy Williams and countless others. He was also a blues shouter who made some wonderful early R&B recordings in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
A new documentary on Doc’s life has been screened in the USA, but I am told there are no plans to release the documentary film or broadcast it here.
So by way of giving the film on this great man a plug here are the trailers for the film.
If you need to find out more on Doc, just Google his name and read about his remarkable life or seek out his biography ‘Lonely Avenue’.
