Great read of the real life legend
My husband has been a fan of your since he was 20. I have loved your music since I heard Nitty Gritty Dirt Band sing Mr. Bojangles.
JJW Gypsy Songman, crazy M-fer, loved it.
As one could expect from a man who writes memorable songs, he is an expert storyteller and the telling of his story is everything you'd expect: honest, engaging, with humor and entertaining.
I very much enjoyed learning Jerry Jeff's story and the story behind his songs.
Would love to provide an in-depth review but I'm way too busy devouring this well-written and informative memoir by JJW. Can't put it down. Guess that means something very positive...
Its not very often that we get to experience such a candid confessional of the lives of our heroes. But this is the exception. The details and descriptions are remarkable and the stories unbelievable. And what a journey it is. Jerry Jeff has had an amazing adventurous life and he did us all a favor by sharing that adventure with us. And... You're welcome Jimmy Buffett!!
