Tom Wright, it’s spelled “Right” not Wright, is a man who should receive a lot more credit for making The Grande Ballroom in Detroit the famous ballroom that it became. Paul Is Dead, The Who, “Tommy” you name it…it was all done at The Grande Ballroom and the man behind it was not russ gibb, but Tom W’Right”. He was the Grande’s Manager and he had been the road manager for The Who years ago and had brought their interest in music over to The Grande Ballroom and helped to make it the famous venue that it was and still is and without Tom Wright none of this would’ve been possible.

Tom has had a stroke, two of them to be exact and now he needs our help. Those of us in the music community must help this man. Not only is it our responsibility, but it’s our duty. The time of life is short, and to live that shortness without Tom would be way too long and the ‘Right” thing to do is to Help Tom now when he needs us most.

KICK OUT the DOLLARS MOTHER FU*KERS because it’s the RIGHT thing to do!!!!

Cheers!

A note from Tim Wright son & caregiver to Tom Wright:

Well he has lost his ability to Communicate. The connection to his vocabulary has been broken. He did all of the speech therapy that his insurance covered. I also paid for 25 more after . He can't use his right arm and needs to have it manipulated and stretched so his arm doesn't curl up tight against his chest. I tried an assisted living home just for the day. Only the hours that I worked . He hated it and I understand that this is not the way for him to recover. I have pretty much slowed my business to a halt to take care of him. I feel he would improve more with more therapy and I have been making him exercise. He is depressed because of all of the projects he was involved with seem to be slipping out of his control. I love my dad and want the best care for him . Thank you for this awesome chance to get my dad back in action. He needs this to get him motivated again. It's not his time to go . He has so much that needs to he shared. Please help tom wright . It will help him to jump back into his projects. It would be a shame for his life's work to stay boxed up here in his room. This is the right thing to do at the WRIGHT time . THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT . I AM AMAZED AT THE AMOUNT OF FRIENDS MY DAD HAS. I USED TO THINK HE MUST NOT BE HAPPY WITH OUT A FAMILY BUT I SEE NOW HIS FAMILY IS BIGGER THAN I COULD HAVE EVER DREAMED. IN AWE ,TIM WRIGHT .

Prayers for Tim Wright that was a great friend to the music community back in the 60's & 70's. Jim Morningstar was a friend of Russ Gibb and his brother Don Morningstar has worked to support this fund raiser for Tim. Sorry I couldn't attend - but I'm glad I can support the cause for Tim Wright. God bless.
