His hits included "I'm Eighteen," "School's Out," and "Welcome to My Nightmare."
But he's got more than that one flamboyant dimension: Over the years he's had friendships with such legends as Groucho Marx, Salvador Dali and Peter Sellers, and his new memoir chronicles how he replaced his addiction to alcohol with an addiction to golf.
