Book 2 AKA Doc Pomus and Book 4 Whazzup on the flupdup.

BOOK 2. AKA Doc Pomus

AKA Doc Pomus (a Docu-Biography about my mentor, manager and friend Doc Pomus) has just opened in Toronto. I hope that it will be a completely resounding success in every way.

Even thought the running time is said to be somewhat less than the minimum one thousand hours that it would take for any one of us to begin to communicate clearly what Doc and his work has ment in and to our lives. Still, I  can’t wait to see it, or more accurately for me, hear it.

That I am in a movie..ah..I mean film (You may recall my writing about it last year when I went to New York to be interviewed) about the good Doctor is a great honor. He was really a great soul and a great man. I feel very privileged not only to have  known him, but to have had his arm around me literally and figuratively for all these years. Turn the stove off, forgeddabout dinner and rush out to see AKA Doc Pomus immeadjitly.  You will dig Doc to bits.

Book 4 Whazzup on the flupadup.

Last week I was in St. Thomas to sing for my sweetheart “Sula” at her Birthday party. She turned 110. I have never had a 110 year old girlfriend before and I doubt I will ever again, so it behooves me to listen and learn. To look and love and listen and learn. And if I had done that more perfectly in the past, the girls from yesterday might  still be willing to smooch me on the noggin, fry me some corn flakes and lay me down to sleep. I didn’t, they don’t, but at least at last, I’ve learned to listen. And.. I like it.                                                                                                                                                                                     

We are still waiting for developments from Johnstown on the production of a concert version of my mighty Rock Opera “SOON”  www.scottfagan.com  and flopping about trying to find a way to finish recording our new album “10 Great Songs In Search Of An Audience” www.10greatsongsinsearchofanaudience.com  I am working my way back to the memwa? Its a question of time management. Thank you for looking in, and please go see AKA Doc Pomus quicko kasplitto. You will love Doc Pomus.

    I saw the Doc “doc” in Toronto, and it is indeed excellent, but the editor had to do a terrific job to get it down to a managable length, given how much there was to tell. Lots of great stories & old film.

    The film had only been finished for about a week when it was shown, but unfortunately, it was a one-time only screening (closing the Toronto Jewish Film Festival). Hopefully it will get plenty of more showings. See http://www.akadocpomus.com for info & screening info.
