"In the course of his storied career as a manager, agent, and producer, Shep Gordon has worked with--and befriended--some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, from Alice Cooper to Bette David, Raquel Welch to Groucho Marx, Blondie to Jimi Hendrix, Sylvester Stallone to Salvador Dalí, Luther Vandross to Teddy Pendergrass. He is also credited with inventing the 'celebrity chef,' and has worked with Nobu Matsuhisa, Emril Lagasse, Wolfgang Puck, Roger Vergé, and many others. In this wonderfully engaging memoir, the captivating entertainment legend recalls his life, from his humble beginnings as a shy unambitious kid growing up on Long Island to his unexpected rise as one of the most influential and respected personalities in show business, revered for his kindness, charisma--and fondness for a good time. Gordon shares riotous anecdotes and outrageous accounts of his freewheeling, globe-trotting experiences with some of the biggest celebrities of the past five decades, including his first meeting with Janis Joplin in 1968, when the raspy singer punched him in the face. Told with incomparable humor and heart, They call me supermensch is a sincere, hilarious, behind-the-scenes look at the world of music and entertainment from a consummate Hollywood insider"--Back cover.
