Robert Smith (a.k.a. Wolfman Jack) tells all in Have Mercy! Confessions of the Original Rock 'N' Roll Animal, and if you don't have fun reading it, then Awooooooooo to you. The Wolfman takes us through his adventures and misadventures, including childhood sex both pleasurable (with a babysitter) and frightening (with a priest), teenage delinquency, drug dealing, pimping, radio-business schemes that nearly got him killed, and Ku Klux Klan rage (they burned a cross on his lawn). You'll also meet Presley, Brando, Kenny Rogers, Jerry Lee Lewis, and dozens more. Full of extraordinary showbiz tales, the book is a wide-open door into the heart and soul of the most interesting and lovable rock & roll animal on the planet. A
