When you think of Steppenwolf, the band’s two songs huge top 10 songs come to mind, both released in 1968, Magic Carpet Ride and Born to Be Wild.  But dig a little deeper, and you find that Rock Me did reach number 10 on the Billboard charts and The Pusher got a lot of airplay from FM jocks… So I discount some critics saying this band was one short of being a one hit wonder.

Episode 28

Grand Funk Railroad sprang up in 1966 from Don Brewer’s band The Jazz Masters. A former Disc jockey, who wanted to be a singer in a rock and roll band approached Don one night after a gig and not only talked his way into the band but also got them to rename the band to Terry Knight and the Pack. He got his way because he could get gigs. Soon Mark Farner joined as a bass player.
