A.K.A Doc Pomus

Paralyzed with polio as a child, Brooklyn-born Jerome Felder reinvented himself first as a blues singer, renaming himself Doc Pomus, then emerged as one of the most brilliant songwriters of the early rock & roll era, writing "Save the Last Dance for Me", "This Magic Moment", "A Teenager in Love", "Viva Las Vegas", and dozens of other hits. For most of his life Doc was confined to crutches and a wheelchair, but he lived more during his sixty-five years than others could experience in several lifetimes. A.K.A Doc Pomus brings to life Doc's joyous, romantic, heartbreaking and extraordinarily eventful journey.
