Very engaging and vivid: reading this book felt like a personal conversation with Joel Smith!
Mr. Legette, you have outdone yourself! THANKS for writing this original book of tribute about the “GOAT”! You have given the world an opportunity to learn about Joel on a very interpersonal level, an experience that feels more surreal than simply reading a book. Since childhood, Joel has been the musician idol I have revered most (there isn’t even a close second 🙂. Your writing format of including other’s experiences and memories of Joel was pure genius and really made the account of his life vivid and present! Please keep me posted on your future work and endeavors & may God bless you.

Joel Smith The Greatest of All Time
It’s Like I hear him talking because you captured Joel just as he is. A simple man with talent no one has thought about having. This speaks to me and you have a way with words of making us relive a time we had with Joel. He was the best bass player and drummer I have ever seen or heard. And that he didn’t read music made his triumphs that much more astonishing. How can you hear where a song is going if you have never heard it and add something special. That’s Joel. Love you My Brother and this is a great book!!!!
