“Jimi Hendrix: The Day I Was There is another fun entry in this series that will take fans who were alive during those heady times in the late 1960s back to their youth, while for those of us too young to have experienced it the first time, we can instead be transported back through the fan recollections. 9/10 “ – Rock and Roll Chemist
“It’s almost like you feel yourself what a revoltion it was to witness the mindblowing experience to watch Jimi, Mitch and Noel when they conquered the world. A highly recommended read!” – Amazon Review
