Dear Harvey,

I hope you are as well as can be expected during this turbulent time in your life.

Facing consequences for our actions can go either way. You can humble yourself and accept the eventual outcome or deny everything and blame others for getting you in this situation.

Back in 2006 I reached out to you reminding you of our time in Buffalo NY when we first met and you accepted my help in promoting The Rolling Stones at Rich Stadium.

To my surprise you sent back my package unopened that included a letter and a copy of my autobiography, "Once Life Matters: A New Beginning."¯

In my attempt to reach out to you in 2006 I included a recommendation for you to seek help at a residential treatment center in south Florida.

The letter from your office that was attached to the returned unopened package stated that you did not accept unsolicited books, manuscripts or other such industry related material.

Had you taken the time to read my letter and book and took me up of my recommendation maybe you would not be in the situation you have gotten yourself in today. 

There has to be a lot of woulda, coulda, shoulda’s rolling around in your head right now but I want you to know there is still hope.

When faced with situations that seem out of our control I like to call them "God Moments”.¯ These are times when you should ask yourself, "What are you trying to say God now that you have my attention and I have reached the end of my rope?"¯

The simple gospel of Jesus Christ states that Christ came to save sinners. And Harvey... like myself who took 35 years of uncontrollable living to understand what damage willful sin causes to oneself ... you can have a whole new life if you call your behavior sinful and ask God to forgive you and be willing to repent (desperate willingness to turn from that sin) and accept Jesus Christ's forgiveness, He will clean you up and make you righteous.

Does that sound too simple or outrageous? Most people will say so and think anyone who believes that is crazy or just plain stupid. But let me tell you, Harvey ... you got yourself into this so please allow Jesus Christ to get you out of it and in turn, make you into the man you’ve always hoped and dreamed you could be.

I remember the days back in Buffalo, New York when we both were just starting out in the entertainment business and had high hopes. I knew you would go onto fame and glory. I sensed your strong determination to make it... and you did! You should be highly commended for your continued success but inner desires almost constantly clash with God’s real plan and purpose for our lives.

I learned the hard way in 1981 when I was arrested for cocaine possession and was carted off to prison. I learned then at the age of 35 that the consequences of a sinful life are just not worth it. God cleaned me up and made me whole.

Now here we are in 2017 and you Harvey, having your back against the wall facing the consequences for your very ungodly behavior. But not ungodly enough that Jesus won't forgive you.

What's your next choice, Harvey? Curl up and die or accept God's plan?

The Bible says if we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from unrighteousness.

A simple prayer of faith is all it takes and you are so close right this very minute to make the most important decision in your life. Do it!!!

I will be praying that God's will be done in your life.

Please feel free to contact me.

Book Description


Special message from Marty Angelo 

I spent 15 turbulent years in the entertainment industry prior to becoming a Christian in 1981 and I have a special burden for today's troubled celebrities. Many are suffering the same consequences from abusing drugs and alcohol that I experienced while living in the fast lane in the music business.

Unfortunately, there were not many people within the entertainment business back in the late '60s and '70s warning others of the high cost of leading such a sinful life. There was not much information available on how to change. Therefore, myself and many of my friends suffered severe hardships with some even resulting in early deaths. Not much has changed over the years.  

I believe as a Christian I have an obligation to encourage troubled celebrities to try a better road to travel; one that leads to everlasting peace, happiness and a new life that truly does matter. I reach out using letters, books, faith-based rehab referrals and court appearances. 

My prayer is that today's troubled celebrities will learn from my mistakes and seek a better life in Jesus Christ.
