“From 1958 to 1963, Neil Sedaka sold 25 million records – more than anyone except Elvis Presley. He thought he could do no wrong. A year later, however, he was all but off the charts, swept away by The Beatles and the British Invasion. The deejays stopped playing his records, and the public stopped buying them.

For 12 agonizing years, Sedaka battled to get back on the charts – back to respectability. Then, one magical night, he performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and his new songs were greeted with thunderous applause. Soon, Elton John, the biggest rock’n’roll star of the decade, was offering to sign Neil to his new label, Rocket Records. Then, in Janaury 1975, ‘Laughter in the Rain’ hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100, sealing one of the most amazing comebacks in music history.

This vivid and authoritative book, written with full access to Sedaka and those closest to him, tells the absorbing story of how he overcame one obstacle after another on his way back to the top. With a foreword by Elton John and an afterword by songwriter Phil Cody, this is the story of the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll survivor.” – From the back cover.

“Neil Sedaka: Rock ‘N’ Roll Survivor” is now available wherever books are sold.
