"With a keen eye for detail and a sharp historical sensibility, Dearborn author Early revisits the tale of the venerable west side ballroom that became one of the country's psychedelic rock meccas in the late '60s. Grande Ballroom lore has loomed large in Detroit through the decades (the documentary "Louder Than Love" was issued on DVD this summer), but nowhere has it been covered at a more granular level than in this 222-page book, which recounts fun rock 'n' roll tales ("The MC5 Versus Cream"), key moments (the Who's live premiere of "Tommy") and signature characters such as Russ Gibb and Tom Wright. " Detroit Free Press
About the Author
Leo Early is an author, musician, historian and preservationist. He enjoys researching and writing about Detroit history, focusing especially on Detroit's rise and reputation as a music capital. In 2003, Leo launched the GrandeBallroom.com to share his research, and the result was an unexpected groundswell of interest in the ballroom. Early has since met and corresponded with many who experienced the Grande firsthand and, in so doing, has inadvertently become a subject-matter expert on this building, a nexus of Detroit music.
