    Grand Funk - Live 1970

    The Grand Funk Live album (Jacksonville Coliseum, Florida, 1970) is one of the rockinest albums ever produced with one of the greatest rock bands that ever came down the pike. If you wanted to learn how to rock, you can't do better.

    Originally just these three members made Grand Funk:

    Don Brewer - Drums, Vocals
    Marc Farner - Guitar, Vocals, keyboards, harmonica
    Mel Shacher - Bass, Vocals

    (they later changed the name to "Grand Funk Railroad" and added Craig Frost to play keyboards)

    This is "Are You Ready"

    It's amazing how certain bands defined an era with a very specific sound. This has a Jimi Hendrix vibe.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    I really loved the Survival album too.
    I remember listening to “All you’ve got is Money” and it was spooky hearing the women screaming. Also in the same era listening to Black Sabbath which was spooky also.

    Great band, love all their stuff. 1st band I was ever in we covered "Are you ready" it was always our 1st song of the night to get the juices flowing and was always such a fun song to play. In fact I think I will go down stairs and play to it today : )

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing
