Jorma Kaukonen is the consummate journeyman. He tours constantly with Hot Tuna and on his own. I am both amazed and thankful for the schedule he keeps at 77.
Somehow between the concerts, guitar teaching, Fur Peace Ranch, and the responsibilities of being husband and father he found time to write his memoirs. No moss grows on him.
His words about achieving this accomplishment strike deep inside this verbal expressive.
“There are those who talk about writing books and those who actually do it”
This is a must-have book for your music book collection. Especially since Grace Slick wrote the foreword and Jack Casady authored the afterword. Fly Jefferson Airplane I always say.
Bravo Jorma! Long may you strum…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I liked hearing directly from Jorma Kaukonen. His words were very personal and revealing. I came away from the book with a better appreciation of who Jorma Kaukonen really is as a person and a musician. His challenges were shared in an honest fashion. As they say, the truth will set you free.
