Richie Furay: I remember Christmas morning going downstairs. I saw this shadow around the Christmas tree and said, Wow! I got a guitar. I went up to this thing and looked at it. It was puke green with cowboy scenes on it and a gut string guitar. I marched it upstairs to my parents bedroom, and I said, I want a real guitar.

Despite a sterling musical pedigree Richie Furay never made it to "superstar" status. As a talented member of the short-lived Buffalo Springfield he was overshadowed by Stephen Stills and Neil Young. After Springfield imploded Furay formed Poco, a pioneering country-rock band that was too country for rock-and-roll radio and too rock-and-roll for country audiences. But then Furay watched in jealous amazement when the upstart country-rock band, The Eagles, rose to the very top of the rock charts. With Furay's next group, David Geffen's CS&N knockoff, the Souther-Hillman-Furay Band, he was hoping to finally catch the elusive golden ring but then a strange thing happened; Richie accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior and his life took a completely different course. Today, Furay pastors a Christian congregation in Colorado.

Furay traces his journey from his childhood in Ohio to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans of Buffalo Springfield and Poco will enjoy his memories and insights. But Furay makes it clear he found something much more meaningful and enduring than fame and fortune when he turned to Christ. There were still many heartaches and disappointments in his life but Richie now had an anchor, a Friend, who sticks closer than a brother. Some Buffalo Springfield and Poco fans will resent Furay's testimony and proselytizing, which is prevalent throughout, but others will profit by it.

A great read written from the perspective of a regular guy. Richie Furay avoids attitude and star turns to reveal the soul of a guy with talent, driven to succeed, but wrestling with normal issues of character, his work, relationships...life in general. The first half of the book is terribly interesting (to me); the background of the workings of a super group (Buffalo Springfield), Poco, S-H-F, and the winding road to fame, the personalities, the conflicts, album & song development. The second half is more focused on his personal relationship with Christ. This book would be right at home in a Christian book store. For some, the frequent reminders that 'God had something else in store for me' may be a bit tedious--yes, the constant reminders seem heavy handed--but clearly there is a genuine joy in his relationship with God. The openness with which he admits his personal failures is riveting. He comes across as a regular guy...a good guy...who'd be great to have as a friend or associate. After reading this, I can't wait to visit his church to experience his service. (Great photos bringing back memories of the great musicians of a bygone era!)

What a open, honest, inspiring, encouraging read! I've been a big fan of Buffalo Springfield, Poco and Richie from their early days. But, once I started this book I couldn't out it down! Brother, this book really spoke to me,! I began it cause of the music. But finished it cause of your faith! I heartily recommend it! Richie, you are an inspired writer of songs and encouraging words. Thank you very much for sharing your life with us through this book!

I'm a big Richie Furay fan, so this was a lot of fun to read. If you like Buffalo Springfield, POCO, or CSN, you'll get a kick out of this book.

"Pickin' Up The Pieces" is a book that has you from the

first page, I couldn't put it down. It's a great read, you

feel as if Richie has said, "Come on in, sit yourself

down, and I'll tell you my life story - or as much as I

can fit in these pages." It really is like a private visit

with one of the best singer/songwriters of all time.

I think Richie did a great job of putting just the right

amount of God, family, friends, and his music in this,

his second and in my opinion, his best book. This

time he has let us in on his life, before, during and

after his rise to fame in the music business.

This is a wonderful book about Richie's life, loves,

sorrows, heartaches, music and of course the best

part - his path to accepting Jesus as Lord of his life.

I really enjoyed the pictures he included in the book

too. Richie at 10 months, a fourth grader, age 8 with

his first guitar, a Gibson ES295 and his senior picture.

Plus pictures of the many friends who helped him along

the way. Pictures of his fellow band members, and

pictures of other famous people he knows as friends.

And of course pictures of his "Kind Woman" Nancy,

their daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren as well

as pictures of Richie's mother, father and sister.

The worst part of this book for me - was that it had to

come to an end. When I had finished reading it, I wanted

more. But, that's how a "Real Rock-n-Roll Legend" leaves

the stage - with the fans wanting more. I hope this won't

be Richie's last book, as he can now add author to his

many, many talents.

Richie is truly a blessing to everyone he comes in contact

with - he always makes time for his fans and friends.

He spreads light, joy and gladness wherever he goes.

Once you meet him and see that special glow he has,

you will never forget him. He is a wonderful, loving,

down to earth, man of God.

I highly recommend this book,

A truly inspiring story. Open and honest, it shows that one can be at the top of the world in the eyes of observers, but on the inside there is still a void that needed to be filled. Richie Furay told a story of pursuit, fame, disappointment, despair, and triumph. If you think you "want it all", this book's for you. If you think you "have it all" this book's for you. If you think that you have "nothing", this book is for you.
Heard about this from a friend you has met Richie Furay. I am enjoying hearing the back story of a favorite sound and more importantly, the story of a man with a heart for God.
