Sunny Quinn a.k.a. Mrs. Don Brewer
Posted 13 April 2008 - 03:38 PM
Sunny Quinn, a 23-year radio veteran of South Florida, has the inside track on musicians. That's because the 58-year-old Jupiter woman is married to drummer Don Brewer of Grand Funk Railroad. She even took a two-year break in the 1990s to go on tour with the band.
But no fair picking your husband's group, so Sunny chose Bob Seger.
'I've loved Bob Seger's music from day one,' she said, 'his raspy, edgy voice, his catchy, diverse lyrics and melodies. Every song he's written evokes memories in my life that I love to revisit. Also, Bob treats his audiences like personal friends when he performs. He smiles, makes eye contact, and touches the hearts of everyone there.'
Sunny and Don actually met on a Bob Seger tour in 1983. Don was playing for Bob, and Sunny was in the entourage. (At the time she was married to Michael Bolton's bass player when Michael was opening for Bob.)
'Don played with Bob all through the '80s,' Sunny said, 'and on the 2007 tour as well. It was an 80-show tour and I probably went to a couple dozen.'
'I know I'm very lucky and also totally spoiled. I now only go to concerts where I can watch from backstage. I'm so lucky to have gotten to personally know one of my most beloved singers of all time. Who can't love that Old Time Rock & Roll? It always puts me in a good mood. One of my most useful quotes I still use in everyday life is, 'Oh well . . . Turn the Page' . . . my all-time favorite Seger hit.'
