On this Mark Farner Interview, stories about Grand Funk Railroad’s first ever gig (at the 1969 Atlanta International Pop Festival), being mislead to signing a horrible record contract, working their way out of $400K in debt, why Mark’s favorite song he wrote is I’m Your Captain and what it means to Vietnam Veterans all over the world… the hit song he wrote in memory of his father, who was killed when he was 9 years old… really cool way he kept himself in check from letting his ego overtake him, Love, giving credit where credit is due, Japan, snow monkees, forgiveness and more. GREAT convo!
