Today's piece of Lost Jewelry from the Vaults at Oldiez 93 for Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 comes from Grand Funk!
On December 29th, 1973, "Walk Like A Man" entered Billboard's Top 40 and walked up to #19, not a great showing, but it spent six weeks in the chart, as long as many that broke into the Top 10.
Grand Funk began as Grand Funk Railroad in Flint, Michigan and consisted of Mark Farner, Don Brewer and Mel Schacer. Craig Frost was added in 1973, the year the band dropped "Railroad" from their name.
Grand Funk placed nine songs in the Top 40 between 1970 and 1975, including two #1s and two Gold Records.
Grand Funk continues to tour to this day with Brewer and Schacher the remaining original members. Their current lineup is rounded out by Tim Cashion, Max Carl, formerly of .38 Special and Bruce Kulik, formerly of Kiss.
