Help Support Our Friend Marshall Crenshaw

City Winery friend Marshall Crenshaw is working on a documentary on the late great Tom Wilson. Please read on and consider supporting him on the wonderful project!

Hello From Marshall:

As Bob Dylan’s record producer from “Blowin’ In the Wind” through “Like a Rolling Stone,” Tom Wilson signed The Velvet Underground and produced their first two albums. He “discovered” Sun Ra, Cecil Taylor, Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention, and added electric instruments to Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sounds of Silence,” giving them their first hit.

He did all of that and more, but wound up dying a pauper’s death at age 47 in 1978.
WHAT HAPPENED?? This question has been obsessing me since I first caught on to his story just over 2 years ago. Since then I’ve been thinking and researching, making important contacts of all kinds, and have started filming interviews for a Tom Wilson documentary. But I want to keep going and take things to the next level, and for that I need to ask for your support. Ultimately the movie will be a team effort, but right now it’s just me, and hopefully you…

Thanks for your support & engagement, and hopefully, I’ll see you at the movies!
