Raised in Missouri’s rugged
Ozark Mountains and on
Florida’s sunny Space Coast,
Christopher Long is an author,
show biz analyst, entertainer, 
radio host and rising name
in Christian ministry. Known for
his conversational, common
sense style, Long has been
called everything from a
"spiritual lightweight" and a
"pathetic loser" to a "mighty
man of God" and "the most
interesting man in the world." 

Long first was lured into the professional entertainment world at age 15 when he promoted a local rock concert event as a student government project in 1978. By the 1990s he was involved with bringing various top-name acts to concert stages throughout Florida’s central east coast.

Since 1985, Long also has been the frontman for the outrageous, Florida-based, award-winning rock act Dead Serios. The band scored a college radio hit in 1989 with the rap / metal single, “Butterbean Queen," and was featured in such prestigious periodicals as Billboard and Thrasher.

Based on his personal 20-year relationship with the multi-platinum band, Poison, Long’s debut book, A SHOT OF POISON, arrived in stores on April 1, 2010. By July, the salacious tell-all ranked among Amazon’s top-selling rock titles.
