Thank you

This podcast is an audiophiles dream to listen too!

wasted spacebar. ,

Good but not great.

Interesting stories and content.
The constant soliloquy’s take away from the story telling

Where’s the genius?

If, like me, you we’re hoping to learn more about the genius that made these people the icons they are, you will be sadly disappointed. The focus is on their bad behaviour. From the sounds of it, Jimi and Jim were always in trouble. Yet they created memorable music. They made it to the recording studio time and again. They put on amazing shows. But you would never know it from this podcast. Yes, they had demons they had to deal with. But how did that inform their music? We won learn that here. Too bad, they have amazing stories to tell.
