40 Year Itch : Doot Doot Doot Doot ...



Celebrity hair dresser Monti Rock III,  already an openly gay for laughs fixture of The Tonight Show and Merv Griffin, took on the persona of Disco Tex for this Bob Crewe-written disco anthem that sold seven million copies, netting Rock, he insists, $127. (Crewe wrote another huge 1974 hit with Kenny Nolan, "Lady Marmalade"--more on that later).Rock says the rest of the money paid his room service tabs. An ordained minister and sober, Rock is still waiting for the opportunity to do a one man show on Broadway.
