Interview With Don Brewer, Co-Founder/Drummer of Grand Funk Railroad, Coming to Atrolla Fest!

A burning question I had for Don Brewer: is it Grand Funk or Grand Funk Railroad? The good news is that either one is absolutely fine. They’re one of the headliners for the upcoming aTrolla Music Festival, May 6th in Dallas at Reunion Tower.

Don co-founded the power trio out of Flint, Michigan, in the late ’60s. Nearly 50 years later they still sell-out arenas. How? Why? I love his response:

“I think the music we created was very honest, it was very uplifting, it wasn’t overproduced… it wasn’t contrived.”

Yep – nailed it, didn’t he?

Don also shares the origin of ‘We’re An American Band,’ why they covered ‘Some Kind of Wonderful’ and his long relationship with fellow Michigan son, Bob Seger. If you loved Grand Funk (Railroad) in the ’70s – or any time since – you’ll love this conversation with Don Brewer.
