“Linda’s book is just incredible. It is a massive piece of artwork. The photos not only tell a story, but they’re gorgeous. The book is epic. She caught a very special part of music history at a time and in a way that will probably never ever happen again. Our band is probably the closest you can get to that feeling of Mad Dogs and Englishmen. I feel really lucky to have been together for the reunion, to have made friends with everybody from Rita to Leon to Chris to Chuck Blackwell, Matthew Moore, Bobby Jones, Pamela, and Claudia. I was blown away by how much love there was, and really there was no ego, which is rare nowadays. All this, Linda documented beautifully. I’m so glad that people will get a real feeling of what happened and how special it was. To have her record of all this is really a gift. ”

“From the beginning of Mad Dogs, Linda Wolf was there present and aware, not only of the journey about to unfold, but ready to document those precious days with her brilliant photographs. We always trusted her, then and now, to be true to her art, and our hearts, in the most intimate and musical moments. This book will give you a look into those magical times. ”
