Mark Farner's Guitar Is Gone- In the Windy City!



Mark Farner's "Tiger" striped Parker-Fly guitar is missing or, Gone with The Windy! Taken from Chicago's House Of Blue's gig for Rock And Roll Fantasy Camp.

The tiger-stripe Parker was Mark's spare guitar and was gone from the dressing room Sunday night after the Camp finale. It's likely that someone has helped themselves to their own version of a Five Fingered discounted Fantasy in obtaining a souvenir stolen from Grand Funk Railroad's lead singer and guitar slinger. "Mark is really bummed" reads the post on the official website.

I'm wondering, How could anyone enjoy holding this guitar, showing it, looking at it and knowing who it belongs to and that you stole it from him? Let's hope it makes a journey back to Mark Farner, the one who wields it well and is it's righteous rock owner.
