How many musicians can say they sold out the same venue as The Beatles, but faster?
Grand Funk Railroad did it when they sold out Shea Stadium in 1971 and that was one of the few trips down memory lane Don Brewer and Scott Shannon traveled down this morning on the CBS-FM Star Phone.
Other epic moments?
