Grand Funk Railroad-Best pt 1-Don Brewer,Mark Farner

Ironic then that this “underground radio” raw , gritty , electrified three-man army would six years later be labeled a Top 40 singles band. Grand Funk sold out New York City’s massive Shea Stadium in 48 hours – ten times faster than The Beatles …(more)

Emerson, Lake, and Palmer- Anthology- Greg Lake, Carl Palmer

Last episode we learned that Bad Company lead singer/songwriter Paul Rodgers, guitarist/songwriter Mick Ralphs, and drummer Simon Kirke all agreed that being the first band signed to Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song label, as well as sharing management with them, was advantageous in the immediate popularity of their 1974 debut as well as the 1975 follow […]
