The founding member and lead guitarist of 1970s rock band Grand Funk Railroad is immortalized in From Grand Funk to Grace: The Authorized Biography of Mark Farner. Author Kristofer Engelhardt (Beatles Undercover) recounts the major and minor incidents of Farner's life, from his salvation at age nine (inspired by Billy Graham's televangelism) to the controversial 1973 haircut that robbed him of his trademark butt-length locks. Punctuated by Farner's musings on the Constitution ("our founding fathers would puke if they saw what is happening to this country!"), good and evil, today's music moguls ("bottom-line oriented bean counters") and more.
