Marty Angelo (once known as 'Party Marty') takes us through his life from years of drug abuse to the redemption power of God. --The Buffalo News
Marty Angelo had it all. He could in fact have been a poster boy for the Swinging '60s. He was full of unhappiness nothing was ever enough to fill the void. Like 'Christian in The Pilgrim's Progress' he felt that a great burden had been lifted from his shoulders. This is a small well written book easily read in a day - which serves almost like the confessional for Angelo. It... is a fascinating account of life at the epicenter of the music industry from the '60s on. -- Blogger News Network
From the Author
My life has been a messy series of events that combined to create a mosaic--the way tiles combine to create an image. As sordid as some of those experiences were, I don't have any regrets and I don't look back in despair. Why? Because they led me to Jesus Christ and salvation. Many people never find God, whether their experiences are good or bad. I want to help people realize that they have an opportunity right now to be a part of God's kingdom here on earth.
