“Music is the reward for being alive”, writes Jorma Kaukonen in this candid and emotional account of his life and work. In a career that has already spanned a half-century - one that has earned him induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, among other honors - Jorma is best known for his legendary bands Jefferson Airplane and the still-touring Hot Tuna. But before he won worldwide recognition he was just a young man with a passion and a dream. Been So Long is the story of how Jorma found his place in the world of music and beyond.

This book is well written, the stories flow in order or the early years of his childhood to The Airplane,Hot Tuna,Vital Parts to his solo career .Jorma does this without beating down anyone around him. Well Done!
For me Jorma has been my favorite guitarist songwriter for 42 years and counting.
