“Jeff Lemlich’s vitality and enthusiasm for rock ‘n roll are equaled by his demand for accuracy. His writing delivers more than the reader expects. Jeff was able to tell me more about my life than I remembered – a remarkable mind. A true rock detective.”
–Jeffrey Allen, drummer for the Montells and Evil

“Jeff Lemlich’s wonderful work is not only well written and documented, but good, memory-provoking entertainment.”

–Travis “Fairchild” Ximenes, leader of the Clefs of Lavender Hill

“All in all, it was a thrill to thumb through the pages and see my life flash back.”
–Henry Stone, “Godfather” of Florida rock and soul, and former President of TK Productions
