Growing up, Pat O'Brien was the skinny Midwestern kid with the divorced parents and the alcoholic father. He drove himself to the University of South Dakota after finishing his last late-night shift and moved in while his roommate was asleep. His life was unceremonious - until he was picked up in the student center by a professor who envisioned his future as the household television name he would become. From that day forward, Pat's life became anything but ordinary: from afternoons in the late Bobby Kennedy's living room with Muhammad Ali, to Rangers games in President Bush's suite, to the drugs and drinking and party lifestyle of Los Angeles. Over the course of his career, Pat has met everyone: the Beatles, the Kennedys, Neil Young, and Magic Johnson. In I'll Be Back Right After This, Pat reveals the highs and lows of life spent sharing the mic with the world's most rich and famous.
The luck of the Irish? Hey charmed life, absolutely. A harmed life, most definitely.
A heroes journey of epic proportions, yes indeed. As entertaining as a one night stand with God.
I enjoyed this audio book. It was interesting to listen to Mr. O'Brien's struggle with his sobriety as well as how he started. I very good insider view into the battle that goes on in the mind of an addict. A perspective that one may not see on the outside of a person with the same struggles
