Synopsis: With an extraordinary candor intended to set the record straight, one of the most popular performers in the history of contemporary music tells of the decadence and destructive trappings of fame--the bucks, the booze, the cocaine, the women--of religious conversion, and of the marriage that literally saved his life. 16-page photo insert.

From Booklist: There's some good stuff here about Campbell's poverty-stricken Arkansas childhood; his recording sessions with Elvis, the Kingston Trio, Frank Sinatra, Ricky Nelson, and dozens of other acts; his days as a Beach Boy; his admiration for John Wayne, whom he met during the filming of True Grit; his affair with Tanya Tucker; and, not least, his friendship with Pat Paulsen, whose hilarious monologue on gun control is reprinted here. Campbell's career reached its zenith in the early 1970s, when he had his own TV show born of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. The parent show, of course, went down for political reasons, which Campbell--and coauthor Carter, a straightforward stylist--talk about with some clarity. Campbell's own downward spiral late in the 1970s followed an unfortunately predictable pattern: alcohol and cocaine abuse. Those dark hours, however, give us the one affecting moment in Campbell's book, during which, with unknowing and ironic desperation, he snorts cocaine and reads his Bible with a kind of furious resolve to do better. Nowadays, Campbell is a sober Christian who tours, plays golf, and takes care of his family. His tone is tedious at times, particularly when he carps about the press, and the reader may long to know more about Buck Owens, Roy Clark, Bobbie Gentry, Roger Miller, and Merle Haggard than Campbell wishes to tell. A lot of good country people were moved by Campbell's recordings of Jimmy Webb songs such as "Wichita Lineman," however, and his book is a sure hit. John Mort
