Abstract:

"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," "Little Latin Lupe Lu," 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 it formed a legend who did it all. Here, Mitch emerges as a real person, one who wants nothing more than goodness--a fair person who loves his family and is amazed that 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."--Jacket.
