Detroit native and Grammy Award-winning producer Don Was is coming home later this month talk about music.
Was (real name Don Fagenson) will be at the University of Michigan-Dearborn on Monday, Sept. 26, for a 5 p.m. reception and a 6 p.m. moderated Q&A session. The event will be free and open to the public in room 1030 of the CASL Building.
The Oak Park High School graduate will also speak to jazz artist Marion Hayden's History of Jazz class earlier in the day.
Was, recently named Chief Creative Officer for the venerable jazz label Blue Note Records, co-founded the band Was (Not Was) and has produced albums by Bonnie Raitt, the B-52's, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Bob Seger, the Rolling Stones and many others. He recently finished John Mayer's next album and has been working on the Stones' upcoming reissue of its 1978 "Some Girls" album.
