Dann Rogers almost had it made. At fifteen he co-wrote a song that was recorded by Johnny Nash and praised by John Lennon as the most beautiful, bloody song he had ever heard. He wrote several more songs recorded by others before venturing out on his own as a singer/songwriter. His debut album, Hearts Under Fire, featured the Top 10 Adult Contemporary hit, Looks Like Love Again, and his ground-breaking 1987 album, Still Runnin, introduced the world to a fusion of rock and country that soon would be known as New Country. The first single from Still Runnin was climbing the charts when his label pulled the plug on the record and his career because Rogers refused to follow the unwritten rules of Music Row. Afflicted with depression and addicted to drugs and alcohol, Rogers left the music industry behind and battled his demons for two decades. In Love, Laughter, and Rage, Rogers tells how he descended to the very gates of hell before his hunger for the truth and the love of a woman challenged him to finish what he had started twenty years before.

About the Author:

A songwriter whose works have been recorded by hitmakers like Johnny Nash, Glen Campbell, and Dottie West, Dann Rogers became a recording star in his own right with his 1978 hit, Looks Like Love Again. After releasing two critically acclaimed albums, Rogers left the music industry and founded Boardroom Traders, a brokerage firm for high-end barter and trade. Reflecting on the twists and turns of his life and career, Rogers decided to write a memoir that would reveal Things I've Learned from This Life, the title of one of several new songs he has written and is releasing along with the book.

I read your book with a great deal of both interest and pride. I am very impressed with the well thought out profundities you shared. --Kenny Rogers

Dann Rogers has written a completely candid and amazingly forceful account of his life, a moving, soulful, and wonderful book. --Leonard S. Levy
