Have Mercy!: Confessions of the Original Rock 'n' Roll Animal
You're running with the Wolfman, full name Wolfman Jack, the world's most famous disc jockey, a thirty-year king of the airwaves who has preached rock, soul, and rhythm-and-blues salvation to 100 million listening fans at a time, on 2,200 stations in 43 countries - and who finally, in these pages, tells the amazing story of his phenomenal life.
Starting out on the tough streets of blackboard jungle-era Brooklyn, scarred by a broken family life, a going-nowhere white juvenile delinquent named Bob Smith plunged himself into the cool world of black street-corner culture. From his hipster roots he evolved into the enigmatic Wolfman Jack, and in the process introduced the African-American world of sexy, funny, crazy, and wise music to millions of thrilled-but-unsuspecting white listeners via some of the most powerful bandit-radio signals on planet Earth.
