It is not every morning that I sit on the stage at the Capitol Theatre in Flint and talk with Mark Farner, but it did happen yesterday. I had the pleasure to talk with the music legend about his upcoming show at the Capitol Theatre, Frank Zappa, selling out Shea Staduim faster than the Beatles and more.

Mark Farner's American Band will be performing along with The Guess Who at the Capitol on Friday, April 19th. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 22nd (tomorrow). Tickets can be purchased at The Whiting box office or via The Whiting online ticket center.

It really was an honor to sit and talk with Mark Farner. Did you know 'I'm Your Captain (Closer To Home) is his favorite GFR song? You do now. I love the story he tells about playing the song for veterans. You will hear that story and more in the video above.

On a side note, I must stop cutting my own hair. Ugh.
