Max Jacobson “Dr Feelgood”

July 14, 2008


Few days ago i heard this urban young princess tell that every sunday you should remember a person who is not physically by your side during that day. This sounded like a really sweet nostalgia ritual, we are sensible guys inside here, so  this last riveron sunday was dedicated to the memory of “Miracle Max”.

Max Jacobson, also known as Dr Feelgood, was the german born medicine-man who administrated huge amounts of amphetamine to lots of distinguished patients and celebrities. We was a member of John F. Kennedy´s medical staff, and the president was told to be one of his most loyal patients. Frank Sinatra, Tennessee Williams, Marilyn Monroe Anthony Quinn, and Truman Cappote were also friends of Max and his little white happy pills.
