By: Tom Weschler and Gary Graff
Primeau Productions Inc. has begun the Internet marketing campaign for the Bob Seger pictorial book by Tom Weschler and Gary Graff titled "Travelin' Man." It is a book whose foreword is written by John (Cougar) Mellencamp, and the afterword was composed by Kid Rock. The book chronicles being on the road and behind the scenes as one of America's icons, Bob Seger, began his career.
On Sunday September 19th, 2010, Primeau Productions, Inc. caught up with Tom Weschler at an old Royal Oak Michigan favorite, the ‘Ye Olde Saloon' to record a digital video interview for the upcoming book promotional video. In addition, Primeau Productions, Inc. will be promoting Tom for an upcoming book promotional tour across the USA and Europe.
Weschler captures Seger's personality on stage and at home, and reveals the colorful personalities of all the people Bob has worked and performed with.
Gary Graff is a Detroit legend and has been reviewing rock and roll for many years. His writing style compliments Tom's pictures by telling the whole story as it should be told. Gary is an award winning music journalist based in Detroit, whose work appears regularly in numerous publications, including Billboard magazine, the New York Times Features Syndicate, UPI, and The Oakland Press. Gary also reports on music news for WSCX in Detroit, Michigan, WHQG in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and 106.7 in Columbus, Ohio.
Gary and Tom work together well; Gary breathing life and historical vision into the descriptions and stories that are followed with pictures that Tom took while in the Seger camp from 1969 to 1977. The two met at a local radio station sponsored event where Tom was exhibiting his photographs. When Tom asked Gary what he thought of the captions, Gary commented that ‘They sucked, and he could do better.' The rest is history.
