The inspirational true story of Moondog, the legendary musician and New York icon whose life was an unexpected, outrageous adventure.
Charlie Parker and Benny Goodman hung out with him. Philip Glass lived with him, Janis Joplin covered his music, Allen Ginsberg stuck it on his fridge, Diane Arbus took his picture and Andy Warhol's mother designed one of his album covers. Merv Griffin interviewed him, Phillip Starck named a building after him, Ravi Shankar appeared in a movie with him and top fashion designers have created entire collections around his look. In the '60's he was a counterculture idol; today he's celebrated by the likes of Antony and the Johnson, The Kronos Quartet and The Mighty Boosh and his ongoing influence can be seen in the work of everyone from Bjork to Philippe Starck.
