From Leni Sinclair:
Dear Friends and Readers,
It's been over a year since Gary Grimshaw and I started working on a book project called "Detroit Rocks! A Pictorial History of Detroit Rock 'n Roll 1965 to 1975."
For information about this project, please check out the attached flyer.
Due to a series of health as well as financial problems, progress has been a little slower than we had hoped for. Recently Gary faced the greatest health challenge of his life, which has him confined to the VA Hospital in Detroit for over three months now. (And yes, Gary is a Veteran, having served his country in the Navy in the early 60s.)
The good news is that Gary's life force is very strong, and he is making slow, but steady progress towards being himself again.
These challenges add an urgency to our quest to finish this book as soon as possible. We have gathered all the images, and Gary had started doing the layout, and he will continue overseeing the lay-out till it's finished.
We are self-publishing a very limited number of the hard-over edition of this book. So far we have over 60 "co-publishers" already, but we have to find a few more to cover the printing cost. Then we will hopefully find a publisher, who will publish the paperback version of the book in larger quantity at an affordable price.
I hope that you will be able to add your name to that exclusive list of co-publishers and/or pass this email along to some of your friends and contacts, who might be interested.
Thank you for your attention and consideration.
Let's kick out the jams!
