Jeff Golub; Train Keeps A Rolling Documentary

Help raise money and get front row seats to see Rod

posted by Mike Walton

During his illustrious career, Jeff Golub was Rod Stewart's front man, he played with Billy Squier and other legends, and recorded 11 solo albums, plus three more as the leader of Avenue Blue. Inspired by Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and BB King, among others, Jeff began playing guitar when he was 12. Playing rock, blues, and jazz guitar, Jeff became a world renowned performer, playing in stadiums, concert halls, and clubs around the world. On January 1, 2015, Jeff passed away from a rare brain disorder, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).

A documentary about Jeff, Train Keeps Rollin has been made but the team who are making it need your help.

They have three years of incredible documentary footage, from 2012 all the way to the tribute concert in Jeff's memory in January, 2015. They also have amazing archival performance footage of Jeff on stage, and in the recording studio. You can help them get this entertaining, emotional, and important story crafted with the care that it deserves. Any amount you can provide helps them through the filmmaking process: editing the story, composing the score, purchasing rights to music and performances, having the highest quality color correction, and sound mix. The entire process will cost more than the $25,000 goal, so any amount you provide will be immensely valuable to making the sure the film is completed and released to the world.

This documentary takes you behind-the-scenes into the life of an extraordinary artist, from his greatest stage and studio performances, to his family life. Most importantly, the film is an intimate portrait of his last years, during which his family and the music community rally around him and, in return, are inspired by Jeff's unflagging optimism and generous spirit.

The Impact
Your contribution will ensure that the film is completed. In addition to telling Jeff's story and providing an inside look at the tight-knit jazz community, this film will help get the word out about PSP, a little-known neurological illness, which shares many similarities with other diseases, such as CBD, MSA, and Parkinson's.

This film will serve to inspire support for research for a cure for these diseases, and also provide comfort and understanding to all families dealing with a terminally ill member, no matter what the disease.

Rod is supporting the project..
"Jeff Golub was an extraordinary guitar player with a big heart and my dear friend. Please support his legacy by donating to the Kickstarter for the documentary 'Jeff Golub: Train Keeps A Rolling'. The film shares the greatness of Jeff’s life while shining a light on the rare brain disorder, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. Every bit helps, big or small, but if you want to go big, then you'll receive front row tickets to one of my concerts."
