Jimmy McDonough

Jimmy McDonough is a journalist and biographer. He is perhaps best known for his biographies of Russ Meyer, Andy Milligan and Neil Young.[1] He is noted by critics for his remarkably exhaustive accounts and for his tendency to avoid romanticizing his subjects' lives. For this reason, he was described by The Times as "a literary Terminator".[2] In addition to the aforementioned biographies, McDonough has authored profiles on Jimmy Scott, Gary Stewart,[3] Hubert Selby, Jr., the Ormond family and Link Wray, among others. Over the span of his career he has written for a number of publications including: The Village Voice, Film Comment, Variety, and Juggs.

He currently lives in the Pacific Northwest where he is dividing his time between 3D photography (his hobby) and writing. His latest work is his 2010 biography of Tammy Wynette.[4]

Though unrepentantly

"inserting" myself into the story

McDonough is also somewhat enigmatic about himself as revealed in a rare 2011 (internet conducted) interview with Jonathan Penner.[5]
