What People Are Saying

Denny Dias
This book is great. It brings back memories of things long forgotten and tells me things I never knew though I was there. Now I remember the smell of the Rainbow. Thanks. -- Steely Dan
John McVie
Remembering is one thing. Bringing back sordid and lurid tales of riotous, drug-induced sexual escapades is quite another! Where are they? -- Fleetwood Mac
Peter Wolf
Dinky recalls a period when most of us who were there don't even remember we were there. -- J. Geils Band
Walter Becker
It wsa the best of times. It was the worst of times...hell, it was the Seventies. Dinky remembers it all, the highs and the lows....what a guy. -- Steely Dan
