Bongo Wolf (William Donald Grollman)
Bongo Wolf was a legendary kooky and colorful Hollywood fringe eccentric cult figure of the 60s. His real name was William Donald Grollman. He was the son of a dentist. Bongo wore fake vampire fangs made out of porcelain, walked with a severe limp, always carried both bongo drums and several books from his vast collection in a duffel bag that was known by his buddies as his "Bongo bag," and really wanted to be a werewolf. A poster of Wolf was available for sale at Los Angeles head shops back in the 60s. He was close friends with rock singer P.J. Read more... Proby and Andy Warhol factory hanger-on Tom Baker. Baker made an oddball picture about him called "Bongo Wolf's Revenge." Longtime horror fan and independent filmmaker Don Glut wrote a story for the November, 1969 issue of "Eerie" magazine named "Scavenger Hunt" that features a weirdo main character patterned after Bongo. Glut also dedicated his book "True Werewolves of History" to Wolf. Bongo appears in the supporting cast of the independent feature "The Wizard of Speed and Time." His current whereabouts are unknown.
