Carl Bonafede is best known for launching the careers of the Chicago-based Buckinghams and guiding them to the No. 1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in February 1967. At nearly the same time, his Daughters of Eve (an all-girl rock-and-roll band) toured the country and entertained thousands, including stateside U.S. troops at the height of the Vietnam conflict. Carl also conducted regular dances at the Holiday Ballroom, among countless other Chicago and Midwestern venues. There, he presented national performers and radio personalities throughout the 1950s, 1960s and beyond. In The Screaming Wildman, Carl interviews celebrities responsible for both the music and the national vibrations they created. He provides in-depth accounts from some of the most gifted and innovative artists ever gathered between two book covers. Some are already household names — the others should have been.
