This book is the true story of a simple uneducated kid from Georgia whose dreams all came true. From his lonely, angry childhood, he wrote and sang music as a way to express his deepest feelings, while in the army, at age 17, Elvis Presley recorded one of his songs which opened doors around the world to castles, stadiums, arenas, movies, TV, etc. From then on his life was a whirlwind-ride of a rock and roll fantasy that he couldn’t make up if he tried.
This is Mylon’s story, in its entirety, for the first time in print, with over 100 photos, and lyrics to 15 of his most popular songs. From playing stadiums, coliseums and getting high with some of the biggest rock stars in the world, to be strung out on heroin and cocaine, he was trapped in a seemingly hopeless pit of depression and loneliness. It’s all here, the good and the ugly. Mylon finally found what he was looking for, but it wasn’t in drugs money or fame... he found God. Not religion, but rather a loving Heavenly Father who forgave him and fulfilled him with purpose and hope.

Grammy and Dove Award-winning musician, Mylon Le Fevre is widely recognized by music historians as one of the most influential forerunners to the Contemporary Christian Music genre. He was born into the legendary gospel-singing family, The Le Fevre’s. When Mylon was 17 years old, his first song, “Without Him” was recorded by Elvis Presley. Over the year, 126 artists recorded Mylon’s songs. At age 19 years old he made his first album and has sold millions since then. His highly acclaimed 1969 album, “We Believe” on Cotillion Records, was the first ever to be released by a Christian rock band on a major secular label.
In 2004, Mylon was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Life Christian University. In 2005, he was inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame and in 2007, he was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. Today he is nationally known speaker and teacher of the Word of God. He and his wife, Christi, travel together internationally, ministering in Churches, revivals, rallies and crusades.
