If you were in one of the biggest bands in the world, how far would you go to promote a new record release?
If you were Grand Funk Railroad, you would put up a billboard in New York.
But it wouldn’t be a normal billboard. On June 14, 1970,
Grand Funk Railroad unveiled their new and now famous “Closer To Home” billboard. It cost $100,000 to do it and it took a full city block to make it fit.
But hey, we bet you remember the song still to this day 48 years later!
