Trailer: A.K.A. Doc Pomus

For a certain generation of music fans Doc Pomus was responsible for the soundtrack of their lives. Born Jerome Felder in Brooklyn in 1925, and stricken with polio at an early age, which left him confined to wheelchair later in his life, Pomus would go on to write some of the most recorded songs in the history of popular music – Save the Last Dance for Me, This Magic Moment, A Teenager in Love and Viva Las Vegas. Pomus, who was one of the legends to come out of the Brill Building, and mentor to the likes of Dr. John and Lou Reed, is the subject of a new documentary called A.K.A. Doc Pomus.

The 98-minute doc, which is currently on the film festival circuit, chronicles Pomus’ life from growing up in Brooklyn to his time as blues singer to becoming one of the most influential songwriters of the the early Rock & Roll era and features interviews with the likes of Dion, Jerry Leiber, BB King, Dr. John, Joan Osborne, Ben E. King, Lou Reed and more. Let’s check out the trailer…
