Overview


Dion came up out of the Bronx in the 50s and tore through the music charts in a ferocious display of talent. He continued to make great music while slowly returning to his Catholic roots. His hard-won wisdom filters through his stories whether he's recalling how he went shopping with John Lennon and ended up on the cover of Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band or what it was like to travel in the Jim Crow South with Sam Cooke.

Praise for Dion...
"To this day nobody, nobody can rock like Dion."—Lou Reed

"He always had the name that said it all...Dion."—Bruce Springsteen

"If you want to hear a great singer, listen to Dion. His genius has never deserted him."—Bob Dylan

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is a delightful conversion story of the return to the Catholic Church of someone who had it all. Dion doesn't hash out things he's shared in other biographies, but rather examines how his spiritual life changed, and how that brought him back to the Catholic Church. It might not be a book that will change your life, but it's a worthwhile read. It's also a slice of modern rock-and-roll history, which makes it fun."—Sarah Reinhard, The Snoring Scholar
