We're an American band

We're an American band

We're comin' to your town

We'll help you party it down

We're an American band.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

Perfection is the enemy of progress. -Winston Churchill

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Is this going to be the start of 500 "Funk" threads?
"There's a grand funk in my shower drain. Will bleach help?"
"Here's another grand-yet-funky railroad video: El Cajon to Newark filmed by lying upside down under a steam locomotive!"

That song has been an earworm in my head all morning . . . before I saw this post.

Bizarre.

Produced by Todd Rundgen, no less.

Just give me one thing that I can hold on to

San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

INDEED! I once thought it was safe to crack a joke about no-talent Barry Manilow's up coming concert in a group of similarly aged people and one small voice say, "I LIKE Barry Manilow."

I now realize that ANYONE in popular music has some fans - else I never would have heard of them...

On all the radio stations I worked on, there was an informal agreement amongst the jocks and management that certain groups were never played on the air. America, Bay City Rollers, Paul Anka “(You’re) Having My Baby”, Terry Jacks “Seasons in the Sun”, Three Dog Night, Rick Dees “Disco Duck”, Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods, "Billy, Don't Be A Hero" and others were on the list along with Grand Funk. And somehow, our stations were always the #1 rockers in the market.

Only a couple of theirs I can get behind, both atypical. They really were a vocal trio, not a "band".

Fox On The Run was a favorite when I was a teen. I had no idea that androgyny was a thing in 1975. Of course Youtube, nor MTV, was a thing at that time.

Homer's thoughts on the subject

"You kids don't know Grand Funk? The wild shirtless lyrics of Mark Farner? The bong-rattling bass of Mel Schacher? The competent drumwork of Don Brewer? Oh, man!"

"Grand Funk Railroad paved the way for Jefferson Airplane, which cleared the way for Jefferson Starship. The stage was now set for The Alan Parsons Project, which I believe was some sort of hovercraft."
