From 1958 to 1963, Neil Sedaka sold 25 million records – more thananyone except Elvis Presley. He thought he could do no wrong, but a yearlater he was all but off the charts, swept away by the Beatles and theBritish Invasion – a blow he never saw coming. The deejays stoppedplaying his records, and the public stopped buying them.

For 12agonizing years, Sedaka battled to get back on the charts – back torespectability. He tried everything: working with hip, youngsongwriters, playing on demo sessions, and even enduring the rough andtumble of working men's clubs in remote corners in the UK. Then, onemagical night, he performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London. His newsongs, including “Solitaire,” were greeted with thunderous applause.Shortly thereafter, Elton John, the biggest rock'n'roll star of thedecade, stopped by to see him and offered to sign Neil to his new label,Rocket Records.

And that was it. In October 1974, “Laughter In The Rain” showed up at number 95 on Billboard– Sedaka's first appearance on the charts in over a decade. Sixteenweeks later it reached number one, sealing one of the most amazingcomebacks in music history. This vivid and authoritative book, writtenwith full access to Sedaka and those closest to him, tells the absorbingstory of how he overcame one obstacle after another to become theultimate rock'n'roll survivor.
