Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestseller

One of my dad’s favorite jokes about getting older was: “I went out for coffee when I was twenty-one and when I got back I was fifty-eight!”

I get what he meant now. Time flies. My first book, If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a "B" Movie Actor, was published back in 2001 and it chronicles the adventures of a “mid-grade, kind of hammy actor" (my words), cutting his teeth on exploitation movies far removed from mainstream Hollywood. 

This next book, an “Act II” if you will, could be considered my “maturing years” in show business, when I began to say “no” more often and gravitated toward self-generated material. Taking stock in the overall quality of my life, I fled Los Angeles and moved to a remote part of Oregon to renew, regroup and reload. 

If that sounds tame, the journey from Evil Dead to Spider-Man to Burn Notice was long, with plenty of adventures/mishaps along the way. I never pictured myself hovering above Baghdad in a Blackhawk helicopter, facing a pack of wild dogs in Bulgaria, or playing an aging Elvis Presley with cancer on his penis - how can you predict this stuff? The sheer lunacy of show business is part of the fun for me and I hope you'll come along for the ride.

– Bruce “Don’t Call Me Ash” Campbell

An icon of B movies and a champion of independent filmmaking, Bruce Campbell is an actor, director and writer best known for his roles as Ash in the Evil Dead franchise and Sam Axe on the hit TV show Burn Notice.

Written and read by Bruce Campbell. Co-written with Craig Sanborn. Recording and sound design by Sean McCoy at Oregon Sound Recording.

Soothing voice to calm the soul, while laughing.

The book itself is comedy gold. You get caught up in Bruce’s world and feel personally connected. Now add his smooth, calm, voice, and your soul will feel refreshed like ointment on hemorrhoids. Quit screwing around and get this book either by audio or hardcover.

Act 2. More Bruce, more honestly

Enjoy Bruce Campbell has an actor and the stories he shares. Love that he reads his own audiobook. Hail to the Chin definitely is an act 2 with more information on Campbell’s life up to Ash vs Evil Dead. My only criticism is that their was a lot of filler for the book focusing on his house and life in Oregon. Every time the story went to this I wanted to skip through to hear more of the behind the scenes in television and movies. Overall enjoyed the book and can’t wait for an act 3

funny, witty..great read!!

Bruce Campbell is one of my favorite actors. I really got into watching him when my teenage sons got hooked on the Evil Dead movies. I had known him in Hercules and Xena; but adored his Sam Axe character in Burn Notice. love hearing his stories as he reads them...now I NEED to go back to the first book. ...and take a gander at those Evil Dead Movies......

The chin is back<br />

Great to hear what the greatest b movie actor has been up to since his last book. You'll laugh you might cry, bit overall a great listen and superbly read, only gripe is that it just ends. Would have been cool to hear what Bruce has planned, but hey that's for another tale.

dissapointed it ended.

love Bruce's voice made it more like a 1 on 1 experience of his experiences beeig told to you. I did buy the book for the decorative sake of owning it but being the dyslexic I am I can't read it and this audio book was a great justification to give the people involved money. probably better to listen to it to be honest :) good book loved it
