Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Kooper-musician, composer, and performer-had the knack of always being in the right place at the right time, which allowed him to be involved in many of rock's great moments from the 1960s on. He played with Bob Dylan, the Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and the Who; founded Blood, Sweat, & Tears; and discovered and produced Lynyrd Skynyrd. He told his story with great wit in this 1998 volume. This updated edition brings his remembrances to the present day.
