Sound Check: Friends pay tribute to late Detroit artist Gary Grimshaw
“Back in January, veteran Detroit radio personality Doug Podell and filmmaker Tony D’Annunzio (“Louder Than Love — The Grande Ballroom Story”) planned this weekend’s salute to famed Detroit poster artist Gary Grimshaw as a fundraiser to help with his mounting medical expenses.
And Grimshaw’s death on Jan. 13 at the age of 67 did not change their resolve to honor him.
“It becomes a memorial and a tribute to him and his work,” D’Anunzio says. “He may be gone, but this is a way to remember him.”
