Grand Funk Railroad during 1970s
On a recent Saturday morning, as I stood in a supermarket line, whoever was in charge of the music began streaming a block by one of my favorite bands from my high school years, Grand Funk Railroad (often shortened to Grand Funk). Out of Flint, Michigan the band formed in 1969, with the trio of Mark Farner, Don Brewer, and Mel Schacher, I didn't discover their music until 1973. By then, keyboardist, Craig Foster had been added, enhancing the mix.
Grand Funk Railroad today
With gratitude to several folks at YouTube, I've posted links to my favorite Grand Funk Railroad tunes -- including a live performance of We're An American Band featuring a shirtless, strutting Mark Farner.
We're An American Band
Some Kind of Wonderful
Rock 'N Roll Soul
I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home
While doing my YouTube search, I started thinking of the many bands I enjoyed in the Seventies -- The Grass Roots, Chicago, Three Dog Night...
If you have a favorite Seventies band, please share.
Have a good week, Everyone!
