Grand Funk Railroad’s Mark Farner: On The Mend

Grand Funk Railroad‘s Mark Farner is back at his Michigan home after recently undergoing surgery to have a pacemaker installed. His wife Leisa writes on his website, “Mark is doing well. He’s very sore and has had the wind knocked out of his sails temporarily. His doctor said don’t baby him so he’s been up and around a bit…outdoors just putting around in the barn with his buddies, Sylvester and LD — the cats… He’s making a lot of effort to not let the stiffness set in so he doesn’t lose range of motion.”

Farner will lay low at home for the rest of the year before hitting the road again in the spring. He’s no longer a member of Grand Funk Railroad, but performs their songs at his solo shows.
