A Kickstarter campaign is underway to get a documentary, Danny Says, made about journalist and author Danny Fields.
Fields may not be a Detroit guy, but over the years this champion of underground music has helped expose the world to many Detroit bands. Let’s not forget, while working for Elektra, it was fields who recommended that the label sign the MC5 and their “baby brother band” the Stooges.
He has indeed led a most interesting life, and a movie would be welcome. To pledge, visit the page here.
