    Terry Knight Murdered

    Can't find a link yet, heard about it this morning.

    Terry Knight, manager for Grand Funk Railroad was murdered by his daughter's 28 year old boyfriend yesterday. He was 61.
    To a New Yorker like yourself, a hero is some type of weird sandwich. Not some nut who takes on three Tigers!

    I was going to college in Mich in the 60s.
    He started out as a dj on am radio and was a big celeb up there.
    Started singing as Terry Knight and the Pack IIRC....then went on to producing records and managing GFR.

    "Grand Funk Railroad" was a takeoff on the Grand Trunk railroad line that ran thru Mich

    RIP TK

    I still have a single of his cover of Ben E. King's I (who have nothing). Terry Knight and the Pack made several appearances on the Upbeat TV show based in Cleveland I think.

    RIP
