About this title

Synopsis:

Filled with anecdotes about his tours and the behind-the-scenes realities of the music business, this autobiography reveals the musician's personal life and musical career, from his Brooklyn youth through his performance at Radio City Music Hall

From Publishers Weekly:

One of the world's most popular musical performers tells the story of his career. Barry Alan Pincus, his father an Irish-American truck driver, his mother the daughter of Russian-Jewish immigrants, grew up poor in Brooklyn. Not a good academic student, he learned to play the piano, aspired to marry young, have children and become an executive at CBS. But soon he got part-time jobs as an accompanist and arrangermost notably for Bette Midler at the Continental Baths and later at Carnegie Halland was induced to sing some of his own songs on a recording. Success and fame came quickly. Even now he wonders at his sudden rise. This warmhearted memoir reveals a friendly, appealing man who maintains relationships with old friends and former sweethearts and believes in "people, loving, and music." The biggest lesson he's learned "is to follow your heart. If you do, you can't go wrong." Photos not seen by PW. Major ad/promo; author tour.
