“What Bill See articulates so perfectly in 33 Days is the realization that life moves at light speed,
and there's never a better time than the present to turn dreams into reality.
The circumstances may be tough and the window of opportunity small, but See appreciates that
if rock ‘n roll is the gateway to happiness, then let the music play.”
- Stuart Levine, Variety
"33 days and the adventure of a lifetime. Truly one of those periods of time where dreams
became reality, if only for the blink of an eye. In 1987, Divine Weeks (Bill, Raj, George, Dave,
and their road manager Ian) stuffed themselves into a back of a beat up old van and went on their
first tour (Don't Hassle It Tour '87). No roadies, no soundman, playing dives, sleeping on someone's
floor, eating PB&J sandwiches. Music at its purest.
The tour itself is one of those now or never experiences. Either the guys
really take a shot at making the band work or they leave it all behind and go their separate ways.
Family demons, responsibilities, college, career, and relationships yelling are louder and louder
demanding an answer, a direction, a commitment. Still, somewhere deep inside, each of the
guys knows they had to do this or they'd regret not taking the chance. In the process, each guy has some
unforgettable experiences while gaining some clarity about who they want to be and what's really important.
I think every one of us has that moment where we decide to either live our dreams
or just give up. 33 Days touches that part of us. I read this story in one go-stayed up until
3:30 am to do so. I simply couldn't put it down. It was like I was a tagalong for the ride.
My dreams may have been different at 22 years old but for a fleeting moment I remembered."

"Bill gives you a good picture of what it was like to be in a band, on tour, loving music and hanging out in LA
in the 80’s. I was there as well and I can tell you thatit’s all true. This was our life, our reality. It certainly
takes me back and reminds me of why it all matteredso much at the time.”
- Steve Wynn, Dream Syndicate
“Bill See thoughtfully and effectively captures the pathos and promise that fuels
a young musician's dreams and punctuates the grit and grandeur of life on the road with
his poignant and nuanced memoir.”
– Spencer Proffer, Music Producer and Media Architect
