Grand Funk Railroad was one of my favourite bands back in the late 1960's and the early 1970's. Rock Music was on the move at that time and the GHASTLY Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band LP had caused me to pull away from the ubiquitous Beatles and some other popular 60's groups. I never looked at them in the same light again. Mark Farner was one of my biggest idols - I mean...JUST LOOK AT HIM!

Here are the lyrics to, "Heartbreaker".
Once I had a little girl, sometimes I think about her
Buddy, you know she's not really there
When memories do call and I just can't live without her, no, no
But tryin' all the time is so hard to bear

Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down

Now, I don't cry no more, I live while I'm flying
But I'll think back and you can hear me say

Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down

Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down

Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down
Heartbreaker, can't take her
Heartbreaker, bringing me down

The band was formed in 1969 by Mark Farner and Don Brewer from Terry Knight and the Pack and Mel Schacher from Question Mark & the Mysterians; Knight soon became the band's manager. Knight named the band after the Grand Trunk Western Railroad, a well-known rail line in Michigan. First achieving recognition at the 1969 Atlanta Pop Festival, the band was signed by Capitol Records. After a raucous, well-received set on the first day of the festival, the group was asked back to play two additional days. Patterned after hard rock power trios such as Cream, the band, with Terry Knight's marketing savvy, developed its own popular style. In 1969, the band released its first album titled On Time, which sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold record in 1970. In the same year, a second album, Grand Funk (aka "The Red Album"), was awarded gold status. The hit single "I'm Your Captain (Closer to Home)", from the album Closer to Home, also released in 1970, was considered stylistically representative of Terry Knight and the Pack's recordings. The band spent $100,000 on a New York Times Square billboard to advertise Closer to Home. In 1970, they sold more albums than any other American band and became a major concert attraction. By 1971, Grand Funk broke The Beatles' Shea Stadium attendance record by selling out in just 72 hours.

Ha ha ha haaa - Good for them! (*_*)
