An American Band: The Story of Grand Funk Railroad
Grand Funk Railroad were one of the biggest US rock 'n' roll acts of the 70s. Initially coming to prominence following the band's performance at the Atlanta Pop Festival, they sold millions of records and played to sold out arenas the world over. A hard working, no-nonsense power trio fronted by the energetic showmanship of Mark Farner, they were often cited as the loudest rock and roll band in the world. In an era dominated by progressive rock, Grand Funk faired badly with critics, but the public, especially in America, had no such problem in adopting them as their favourite band. This authorized biography details how the band rose to stardom and captured America's heart.
