The amazing story behind the song, the tragedy of the original artist, a story that will touch your very soul. He was there during the birth of Rock N' Roll. His records were burned, his songs were considered more of that "New York Jungle Beat" that was sweeping the planet and destroying America's teens. Merely mentioning the word "Rock" in a Christmas song was considered blasphemy. A story about success, heartbreak, love and despair it touches all who read it.

This first release by Lisa E. Brown and David Ward Davis has been a remarkable experience for us as well as them. The reading public is fast discovering the many talents of these two fast rising stars in the world of storytelling. They make you feel as if you are sitting across the table from them as they spin their tale. They are earthy, yet honest in their observations. Their carefully chosen words ring true and genuine...gently brushing the soul.From the Author:
I tell this story because I lived it. I spent 27 years with Bobby Helms the subject of this book. I lived the heartbreak and the despair. I shared in the exilaration and the ominous threats on both of our lives. I watched his children grow to adulthood and held my breath as he ascended one obstacle after another in his quest to reestablish his career. I cried tears of sorrow when he departed this earth to sing in the heavenly chorus. D.W. Davis ; I met him briefly, I was entranced by a man who, while connected to an oxygen machine, pulled out a guitar and sang me his latest songs, a powerful voice of youth and vigor coming from the body of an apparently dying man. L.E. Brown.
