Grand Funk Railroad is playing the Dodge County Fair Saturday night (8/18) with opening act Foghat. I got the chance to talk with original member Don Brewer about the band's Flint, Michigan origins amidst the bustle of Motown and emerging hard and punk rock in nearby Detroit, why they chose to cover "The Loco-motion," whether hotel managers still worry when they see the band is checking in, what's so different today (and is it better?), the gospel behind "Some Kind of Wonderful," the band's current lineup (which includes two of the original three members), and more.
It's all in Episode 9 of the EricCast, my podcast on the iHeartRadio app. Stream it below, or connect to it here!
