Up (Real) Close with Tom Dressen

In September of 2009, Tom Dressen will celebrate 40 years in show business. Dressen has done it all. He has opened for the biggest names, like Frank Sinatra. He has headlined in Las Vegas. he has appeared on virtually every talk show past and present.
Dressen never forgets his Chicago (actually Harvey), roots. He often comes back to Chicago to help in various fund-raising efforts.
One such event was Mike North's Bowl-A-Rama in the late 90's. Dressen bowled his games and signed autographs for hours, never showing any signs of stress or fatigue (even when my enthusiastic photog got a little too close...sorry Tom).
