    I received my copy this weekend and am halfway through it. Compusively readable and exhaustively researched, this book has it all: Tim's boyhood, Hot Rize's ascent into the upper echelons of bluegrass, Mike Kemnitzer and how he got his nickname, and even a Mandolin Cafe reference. I highly recommend this. I would be done with it by now if its tales of Tim's tireless work ethic didn't inspire me to put the book down and do more practicing.
    I laid the tracks, never rode the train.

    My main musical influence for many years! I've lived in Boulder since 1987 when Hot Rize was in their prime, and Tim was experimenting with solo projects at small venues in town. Before Rockygrass Academy moved to Lyons, it was held in Telluride before the festival there. In 1993 I took the mandolin class with Tim and he was a great teacher and fun to be with. Proud to say I've moved past stalker to friend and have shared some whiskey and tunes with him. Didn't know about this book; very excited to read it!
