9781420834321: A Piece of the Big-Time: (my songs - my success - my struggle for survival)

From the Award Winning Songwriter, Baker Knight, comes his memoir. It's brimming with a sense of humor and poetry not yet set to music - it tells one of the most heart-rending life stories you will likely hear - from the slow-paced Southern city of Birmingham to the fast-track Hollywood scene and back again. Throughout his life of triumph and failure, he searches for help for a complex medical condition, and seeks understanding and compassion from family, friends and colleagues - both seem to be elusive. His personal and business successes make a captivating read. He takes us back to the magical late 50's, the 60's, and 70's to a Hollywood filled with the stars of yesteryear - teenage idols to the King of Rock and Roll. The Horrorhouse of his youth is left behind as he becomes a young man, but it never seems to let go. He is driven by a great talent and sense of survival. It may have you laughing, crying, or tugging at your heartstrings, but it will always entertain. This fascinating book could only have been written by someone as sensitive and gentle as this great songwriter. Maxine Singleton Assistant Editor
