Music, Medicine, and Michael Jackson: The Rock Doc

The Big Mouth Pharmacist discusses the rock doc

 In This Episode

This week, we experiment with all the different ways to spell Neal. It's two, there are only two ways; and the other way is favored by our guest, Neil Ratner a.k.a. The Rock Doc. What an interesting life this man has lead. He talks to Neal about his love of music early on coupled with his love of the human body; how he met up with the brothers Winter and became Edgar's tour manager; how that lead to forming his own company and then leaving it all behind to pursue medicine. But his life in music didn't end there. If his name sounds familiar, it's because he became Michael Jackson's personal physician for a time (not the one with him when he died). Think that's as crazy as his life got? There's still more...
