Winner of gold medals at the IPPY, and the National Indie Excellence awards. A gifted writer with an original voice, Mitch Ryder first gained fame as the leader of the iconic rock group Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels. With hits such as "Devil With a Blue Dress On / Good Golly, Miss Molly," " Sock it to Me Baby," and "Jenny Take a Ride," Mitch quickly rocketed to international fame. This resulted in a roller coaster ride of sex, drugs, celebrity, and rock and roll. Along the way, he became a legend who did it all. Here, Mitch emerges as a real person who wants nothing more than goodness a fair person who loves his family and is amazed they still love him despite his many mistakes. Readers learn how John Lennon saved Mitch's life, about Mitch's plan to kidnap a celebrity's son, of Percy Sledge's stage secret, and many other backstage tales. Includes more than three-dozen previously unpublished photos, and copies of personal letters from and to the author. A full discography of Mitch's musical works, an index, and a link to a CD download of Mitch's music are also included.
