Footstompin’ Music

On this date in rock history, in 1971, Grand Funk Railroad releases “E Pluribus Funk.” The critics bash the album but the fans buy it. I’ve always been a big fan – I saw them live in Iowa City in 1976 or ‘77; at that time they were one of the loudest (if not the loudest) bands around. Let’s take a look at one of the songs from that album – must be nice to have an extra B-3 laying around for Mark Farner to play a couple of chords on - and does the man even own a shirt?! I also like Don Brewer’s bolero look – cute! Thanks to for the info, enjoy, and keep on rockin’!

I had their live double album & played it to death in 10th grade; Istill have a soft spot for this band. Fuck the critics -- were they playing loud & proud in '71? NO THEY WERE NOT. :-)
