SAD NEWS REGARDING GARY GRIMSHAW
Gary Grimshaw -- one of Detroit's greatest graphic artists, Grande Ballroom poster legend, creator of the MC5 logo, former '80s CREEM art department honcho, and just all-around great guy -- has been quite ill for several years now. He has been maintaining nevertheless. Sadly, we received this e-mail earlier today:

Our friend -- and Detroit's rock art treasure - Gary Grimshaw, has become seriously ill. He has just undergone major surgery. The result is the removal of the majority of his small intestine in the first stage of operation. He has survived that stage. He will be unable to eat solid food from this point and will have to subsist on liquids and intravenous feedings for life. There is still stage two for him to endure.

Laura Grimshaw, his wife, has asked everyone to give a moment of thought, meditation, or prayer for Gary.

Please forward this message to all of his many friends.

Damn! Please think good thoughts for Mr. Grimshaw...

Wow, that is really sad to hear. I had no idea he was ill. :(

I just pulled this one out the other night as I forgot I even had it.

Things like this should not happen to people like Gary.

I saw him less than a year ago...he is a quiet, and very humble man.

My best wishes go with him.

Gary Grimshaw 2012 with Leni Sinclair and their new book.JPG
Hello Gary Grimshaw fans,

This is Laura Grimshaw. Rather behind in life, I have just joined EB. Thank you for the kind thoughts and comments about Gary.
Since this was posted he has come through much better than doctors first thought. He spent five months in ICU and another eight in a rehab facility. He lives at home now and eats regular food. Each day is a challenge but he has no expiration date. That he is still with us is a miracle, truly, and many people from all over the planet continue to keep his well being in their thoughts and meditations, which I personally feel is a huge assistance.
Each day is a blessing and we hope for many more. What keeps his spirit alive is his career; his artwork; both past and present. With myself as project manager and Kristi Pesick as software expert we continue to take jobs and Gary contributes hand lettering for new clients.
We had hopes of traveling to the TRPS Hall of Flowers event in San Francisco (we live in Detroit, Michigan) but have put it off for 2014 so he can build strength for the long journey.
Meanwhile, we are going to take a smaller journey to see how it works. We are going to participate in the first Brooklyn Bowl poster show!

http://www.brooklynbowl.com/event/34923 ... -brooklyn/

Gary will be there in person!

We are bringing a silkscreen version of the Seagull (MC5 Grande Ballroom 66 Grimshaw) - Gary's first poster ever - done on Mr. French craft paper (tan in color); slightly oversized and hand screened. They are stunning! Hope to see many of Gary's fans come out to Brooklyn, New York on September 29, 2013.

I've attached a photo of Gary taken late last year when he and Leni Sinclair celebrated the release of their self-published book called Detroit Rocks! Shown in the photo is the back cover of the book.

Your good wishes mean the world to both of us. Thank you. Love on You. As Gary says, "Peace and Power". LEG

That's a tough loss.

Especially to see that his wife had such high hopes for his healing.

RIP Gary. :(

Your many memories will live on thru your gig posters!!!
