Desmond Child w/David Ritz “Livin’ On A Prayer: Big Songs, Big Life” Book Review

Songwriting extraordinaire Desmond Child released his long awaited autobiography on September 19 of 2023.

I preordered a signed copy, via TalkShopLive.  Thank you for that!!

I could not put this book down. 

Desmond has lived a full life.

So full that I don’t even know what to say because I don’t want to leave anything out.

All I can say is that if you want to read a compelling story, this is it.

I cannot recommend this book enough.

Not just for the stories he has about working with Barbara Streisand, Laura Nyro, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, KISS, Meat Loaf, Ricky Martin, just to name a few, but for his life story.

Desmond has seen, done, and experienced a lot.

I have nothing but respect for this man.

Thank you sir for writing this book, along with David Ritz.

I can’t say enough how compelling it is.

Thank you sir.

And everyone:  Please check out his solo album Discipline.  It is a masterpiece.  Not opinion.  Fact.  The song “Obsession” alone is one of my favorite songs of all time.

How he is also not one of the biggest singers in the world is beyond me.

But hey, he’s done great and continues to do great.
