I've been a fan for years and finally read Gypsy Songman. Ton of great stories about the places and characters that shaped his life and career, many of which became inspirations for songs. You'll laugh at the way he fell into the name Jerry Jeff Walker and think it's pretty cool you now know how Mr. Bonjangles' dog died. It's all in this absolute must read for every tried and true Jerry Jeff fan!

I very much enjoyed learning Jerry Jeff's story and the story behind his songs.
