More About the Author

Raised in Missouri's rugged Ozark Mountains and on Florida's sunny Space Coast, Christopher Long is an author, show biz analyst, entertainment personality and a rising name in Christian ministry. Known for his Erma Bombeck-like conversational, common sense style, Long has been called everything from "a spiritual lightweight" and "a pathetic loser" to "a mighty man of God" and "the most interesting man in the world."

Long's first book, "A SHOT OF POISON" arrived via CG Publishing on April 1, 2010. Combining accounts of his personal experiences in the entertainment world with a bold Christian message, Long's second book, "C'MON! - My Story of Rock, Ruin and Revelation" was released via Digital Books International on January 17, 2012. Also via Digital Books International, Long's third book, "SHOUT IT OUT LOUD - Stories of Fast Times and Faith, From the Show Biz Guru" was released on May 13, 2014. His fourth book, "SUPERSTAR" currently is in development.

Christopher Long lives on Florida's east coast, near Cocoa Beach and currently attends Central Life Church in Indialantic.

A candid look into the life of author Christopher Long, "C'MON! - My Story of Rock, Ruin and Revelation," is a captivating read. It takes you on the journey through Chris's life, from his small-town upbringing to the big lights (and associated trappings) of a rock and roll lifestyle over the last three decades. Chris was in a position many might find enviable - lead singer in a band, beautiful rock-and-roll wife, and hob-knobbing in the inner circle of many legendary bands and musicians, including Poison. Something many dream of. But what Chris never showed during this time were the cracks in his armor...a depression that would take him to a very dark place in life. Through a divine intervention he is rescued from the fall, embracing a life of spirituality and `realness' through which he finds his authentic self. Excellent triumph, fantastic story, great read.

I suppose I should have known... I expected this book to deal with the so-called "evils of rock music," what with the Bible verse printed on the palm of what I can only assume is the author's hand on the cover, but sheesh -- the church where I used to play guitar rocked far harder than this book.

I got the impression that the author was striving to raise eyebrows and shock those church people who read the book by implying that he had been immersed in a maelstrom of sin; lost and then found, as it were. But as I skimmed through this lightweight memoir, I realized that it is nothing more than another sensationalist piece by a wannabe rocker. I gave up on it at the point where the author smoked pot at his first KISS concert (at age 15) and subsequently hallucinated and passed out. Of course, I suppose it could have been laced with PCP, but...

Anyway, I'm glad I got this for free. I would have been sorely disappointed if I'd paid full price for it.

Long's autobiographical book C'mon is a text that I would not normally pick up, and were it not for the complimentary copy that I picked up on my Kindle as well as a review I read about the text, I would not have given it a second chance. I have two conflicting thoughts on the piece.

The thing that I enjoyed the most about the book was its frank and intimate exploration of the inner workings of the music industry from someone who is just on the outskirts nudging his way in. Long presents himself as an insider, but in many ways is an outsider who tiptoes around some incredibly famous and notable icons in the rock world. Those he has the opportunity to get close to end up burning him in the end, and it is easy to see how his status as a hard-rocking, hard-partying, but vocal Christian could keep him at arms length in many of his circumstances. This makes his experiences unparalleled, however, and his desire to succeed and play with the icons is insatiable. To see many of the bands he mentions in this light and from this angle, highly personal and wholly honest, almost made me see Long as a tragic figure throughout the book even though his tone didn't explicitly communicate that - in short, he has ended up where he least expected as he writes this book. He has found a group that has given him the fellowship and the camaraderie that he has thirsted for in the least likely place at this point in his life, however.

That brings me to the second part of my review, and that is the presentation of the work. Here is where I did not really enjoy the book. Many reviews that I read after finishing it mentioned that he was heavy handed with the Christian portion, but I argue that it is a main point going into the book.

I had recently finished reading Christopher Long's new book, "C'mon! My Story of Rock, Ruin and Revelation". Chris gives a real life account of his personal and professional life beginning with his upbringing in Springfield, Missouri to his teenage and adult years in the East Coast of Central Florida, where Chris has been deep into the music scene for many years and had made contacts and developed relationships with many high roller names in the industry.
There are many stories from being physically threatened by Gene Simmons of Kiss to attending a wedding at Donald Trump's estate, and touring with the band Poison as Bobby Dall's personal assistant, which brought him to the point that he wrote his first book, "A Shot of Poison" , which was a great success. When Chris thought that he had finally reached his dream, he found himself deep into depression to the point of contemplating suicide, because of various threats that were put on his life.
On his road to Damascus, he receives a life saving phone call. He is encouraged by the angel on the phone to open up God's Word, and to come to Christ! Chris now enjoys an active role at the East Coast Christian Center in Merritt Island, Florida, and is scheduled to make appearances at many churches across the country as an inspirational Christian speaker sharing his personal testimony.
His book has received wonderful endorsements including a Forward from Jeff "Blando" Bland, Guitarist for rock band Slaughter and Vince Neil.
This is a must read!!
