Kenny Rogers Memoir Drops Plastic Surgery Chapter

Kenny Rogers might be a rollicking pop and country music star, but he has lived the life of a hard-core rocker — sex scandals, plastic surgery, much younger women and album sales that would make any cowboy shake in his boots. Rogers reveals it all in his new memoir, “Luck or Something Like It.”

Rogers grew up in Depression-era Texas in a Houston housing project with an alcoholic father. He did not succumb to these struggles, however, he became “more determined,” Rogers told Reuters when discussing the revelations in his memoir. “I think there were times in my life I was so driven I became very selfish, and I’m not proud of that. I think it’s a realization I came to when I was writing this book.”

His father’s alcohol abuse continues to puzzle him. “I think that one of the real tragedies in my life is that I never really got to know why my dad drank. He was an alcoholic, but during that time, post-War World Two, a lot of people were unemployed and ended up drinking. He couldn’t really support his family and I think it just broke him down. It breaks my heart that I didn’t know that before he passed away.”

In the ’70s, Rogers split from his country music group for a solo career. Rogers’ 1977 song “Lucille” was a chart-topping hit that sold more than 5 million copies and soared to No. 1 on the charts in 12 countries. Over the next decade he enjoyed superstardom, which was marred with its fair share of scandal.

He might disclose details about the sex scandal in his memoir, but he does not discuss his plastic surgery. Rogers admitted to plastic surgery during an interview with People in 2006. At the time, he said he was “not happy” about the work he had done on his eyes.
