March 30, 2011:  Gary Leeds of The Walker Brothers/Gary Walker & the Rain was given a copy of the chapter dealing with Joey Molland's tenure as his lead guitarist for authoritative scrutiny and had this to say; "Just finished reading the chapter, very nice and a good flow.  I think everything was cover[ed], and found it enjoyable."  He also added at the end of his e mail "I wish that the group had carried on.  We had something that just worked and I know we could have done some damage.  Best wishes, Gary."
