“Hey, yo, Jim . . . This is Sylvester Stallone. Give me a call . . .” 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.

Through the Eyes of a Tiger

It was a year that would prove to be pivotal for Vietnam, the United States, and Hoyland himself. "Through the Eyes of a Tiger" is the story of one man's tour of duty in the Mekong Delta from November of 1962 through November of 1963.

In August of 1962, civilian medical doctor Jay Hoyland became an active-duty captain and medical officer in the U.S. Army Medical Corps during the Vietnam War. For the next twelve months, Hoyland provided medical support as a flight surgeon to the Ninety-Third Helicopter Company-the Soc Trang Tigers. It was a year that would prove to be pivotal for Vietnam, the United States, and Hoyland himself. "Through the Eyes of a Tiger" is the story of one man's tour of duty in the Mekong Delta from November of 1962 through November of 1963. With the help of Hoyland's wartime journals and letters sent home to his family, he recreates an unvarnished account of his life during this tumultuous time. Whether it is a heartbreaking visit to a Catholic orphanage, the adrenaline of combat, the unique relationship between brothers-in-arms, or the horrors of the hospital ward, Hoyland's vivid imagery and thoughtful prose paint a realistic portrait of war. Set against the broader historical context of the Vietnam War, "Through the Eyes of a Tiger" is a worthy addition to the scholarship available on the Vietnam War. But more importantly, it reveals the dramatic impact of war, both present and future, on the soldier himself.

Some of the lyrics of the Bob Seger song "Turn the Page" could be written about the life of a mascot: "You feel the eyes upon you...Most times you can't hear 'em talk...Every ounce of energy you try to give away...There I am, up on the stage..."As you turn the pages of this book, you will read stories about some of the experiences of the students who have portrayed the Clemson University mascots, The Tiger and the Tiger Cub*. We hope they will become a history lesson for all who love Clemson, and that they will last forever as readers pass them along at a family gathering, a tailgate, on a sports talk show orwith a weekly lunch group.The question remains the same and the answer never changes: "Is it hot in there?" Anyone who played the role of the Clemson Tiger or Tiger Cub has been asked this question over and over. Every Clemson fan has probably had a picture or interaction with one of the mascots over the past 65 years.
