    Listened to this for the first time in a while. The intro came on and I swear it was Grand Funk! Don and Mel anyway. Definitely not Mark. :D

    But Grand Funk is not Funk - not even close.

    Closer to rock and Roll than funk.

    You guys are missing the point. Festofish is likening the sound of the intro to something that Grand Funk Railroad made a career out of.

    Yeah--it DOES sound like Grand Funk. I never noticed that.

    Nope. Power trio rock, at least in the beginning.
