“I think anyone with even a passing interest in what it was like in the music business in Hollywood during the ‘60s and ‘70s should rush to read this book. Having known Michel for over four decades, I can say with complete certainty that he has lived a life like no other person I know. You will find your mouth hanging open while madly turning the pages of this vivid, engaging and entertaining memoir. Get ready for a wild ride...some of which I experienced firsthand.”

- SUZANNE DE PASSE, PEABODY, EMMY AND GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD-WINNING FORMER PRESIDENT OF MOTOWN PRODUCTIONS AND CURRENT CO-CHAIRMAN OF DE PASSE JONES ENTERTAINMENT

“Mike Rubini (that’s the name he used when we met) was the best piano player I’d ever seen when I was sixteen and the first real “legit” guy I got to know in the music biz. We’ve made a lot of great music together since then, had a lifetime of laughs, and also chased a few females during our fifty-plus years of friendship. Honestly, as talented as Michel is, in my opinion, he is even a nicer person. His book is honest, entertaining, and a great read!”

- MIKE POST, MULTI-GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING MUSICIAN, PRODUCER AND COMPOSER

“Michel Rubini’s unflinching honesty, gift for storytelling, and sheer number of jaw-dropping escapades combine to make Life in the Key of Rubini simply impossible to put down.”

-KENT HARTMAN, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE WRECKING CREW AND GOODNIGHT, L.A.
