The Comeback Trail

Slide 1 of 30

Musicians, actors and writers who triumphed over personal and career crisesBy Sean Nelson Special to MSN EntertainmentAs David Lynch told Louis C.K. on an especially poignant episode of "Louie," the second rule of show business is "you've got to go away to come back." In this gallery, we examine the lives and careers of artists who have completed this cycle -- often more than once -- bouncing back from disease, addiction and the thousand natural shocks that celebrity is heir to. Some are musicians, some actors, some writers, some multitalented hyphenates, but they all share two things in common: They went away, and they came back.
