Joe is transferred to go and head another prison facility, while Steve is jailed yet again. The two meet on the day that Steve is admitted to the facility, and Joe immediately falls in love with him.

It was these words that would set Jim Peterik on the road to rock ’n’ roll immortality. After he and his Survivor bandmates recorded “Eye of the Tiger” for the Rocky III soundtrack, the song would go on to earn a Grammy, an Oscar nomination, reach triple platinum status-and become one of the most recognizable tunes in music history.

But there’s much more to the story of Survivor and its founding member, Jim Peterik, than meets the eye. As one of the most prolific songwriters of his generation, Peterik has cowritten songs with some of the most famous bands and artists of our time, including 38 Special (“Caught Up in You,” “Hold on Loosely”), Sammy Hagar (“Heavy Metal”), The Beach Boys, The Doobie Brothers, REO Speedwagon, Cheap Trick, and many more. Now, for the first time, Peterik is sharing his stories.

Filled with tales from Peterik’s life in rock ’n’ roll, Through the Eye of the Tiger documents his early days of success with The Ides of March (“Vehicle”), through the often torturous power struggles within Survivor, and the giddy highs that accompany a trail of worldwide hits. From going to a party in Led Zeppelin’s hotel room (and turning right back out the door) to escorting a disoriented Janis Joplin back to her hotel room after opening her show in Calgary, Peterik’s accounts will surprise and delight.

Through the Eye of the Tiger is more than just a memoir of a songwriting legend; it’s a classic rock ’n’ roll story told through the eyes of someone who has lived through it all-and through the Eye of the Tiger.
