CHRISTOPHER LONG
Bio

Christopher Long is an author, show biz analyst, award-winning musician, entertainment personality, Internet radio host and a rising name in Christian ministry. Known for his conversational, common sense writing style, Long is passionate about sharing the "Good News" of Jesus Christ through unique and compelling stories.

Raised in Missouri’s rugged Ozark Mountains and on Florida’s sunny Space Coast, 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 hard rock act, Dead Serios. The band scored a college radio hit in 1989 with the rap / metal single, “Butterbean Queen," and has been featured in such prestigious periodicals as Billboard and Thrasher. The latest Dead Serios record is set to arrive in 2018.

In the early 2000s, Long began establishing a reputation as entertainment writer and music journalist. He continues to contribute lively content to various outlets, including Ink19.com, MuenMagazine.net and PureGrainAudio.com.

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

Combining accounts of his personal experiences in the entertainment world with a bold new Christian message, his second book, C’MON! (Digital Books International) was released on January 17, 2012 and it quickly became a popular faith-based Kindle title.

Entitled, SUPERSTAR, Long's Christian fiction debut was completed in 2018 — an official release date is expected soon.

In 2016, Long's weekly classic country Internet radio show debuted worldwide on the Real Country Radio Network. The program aired through early 2017 and is expected to launch on terrestrial radio in 2018.

Long holds a degree in Theology from East Coast Christian University in Merritt Island, FL and he remains active in missions work and youth ministry.
