Grand Funk Railroad
« on: September 28, 2015, 12:51:06 PM »
Another forgotten classic band. I think Tommy Lee from Motley Crue owes everything in his stage persona to Don Brewer. Mark Farner one of the great guitarists, songwriters and vocalists in rock.

Good stuff.

You make a great point 'NJF' regarding Lee taking a few pointers from Brewer on showmanship. Truthfully, I never thought about that.

Heartbreaker Live 74: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21_yRb7qYNE
This show is easily available if you seek it out and it is a little more glitzy and polished than their earlier stuff but these guys could flat out rock.

for example ,here they are less polished and glitzy:

How many times have we sat in your moms basement smoking cigs, drinking her famous iced tea and listening to actual albums and cassettes and rocking out on air instruments, or just sitting there letting the music take over our minds?
