This book is the true story of a simple uneducated kid from Georgia who’s dreams all came true.

When I was 17, Elvis Presley recorded a song I wrote and from then on my life was a whirlwind-ride of a rock and roll fantasy that you couldn’t make up if you tried. This is my story, in it’s entirety for the first time in word and over 100 pictures. From playing Stadiums, Coliseums and getting high with some of the biggest rock stars in the world to being strung out on heroin & cocaine and trapped in a seemingly hopeless pit of depression and loneliness, its all here, the good, bad and the ugly. I did finally find what I was looking for, but it wasn’t in drugs, money or fame… I found God. Not religion, but rather a loving Heavenly Father who forgave me and filled me with purpose & hope.
