As a friend of legendary rock vocalist and guitarist Mark Farner, I wanted to make you aware of a documentary that’s in the works regarding his life called, I’m Your Captain – The Mark Farner Story.
Slated for release in September 2013 to celebrate both Mark’s 65th birthday and the 40th Anniversary of Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re An American Band” hitting #1 on the Billboard charts, this movie should be a riveting ride.
The producers of the film have a website where fans can participate in funding the project and investors can get involved to the help fund the film – http://www.indiegogo.com/Im-Your-Captain-The-Mark-Farner-Story.
If you know anything about Mark’s history with his band, Grand Funk Railroad, or his life in general, you know this has the makings to be an excellent documentary.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mark over the past dozen years on various tours and benefit concerts, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more genuine individual.
Please help spread the word on the project and join the journey on getting this done.
Thank you for your support.
