Mark Farner Net Worth: Mark Farner is an American singer, guitarist and songwriter who has a net worth of $16 million. Mark Farner was born on September 29, 1948 in Flint, Michigan. As Grand Funk Railroad’s lead vocalist and lead guitarist, and later contemporary Christian musician, Farner wrote and/or sang some of the most famous songs of most of Grand Funk Railroad’s ’70s hits: I’m Your Captain (Near Home), Bad Time, Footstompin’ Music, Rock & Roll Soul, the first remake of Little Eva’s classic The Loco-Motion, covering Some Kind of Wonderful.

His first notable recording was on Lucky Eleven Records with Terry Knight & the Pack, released by Cameo/Parkway. After Grand Funk initially disbanded in 1976, Fana released his first self-titled solo album in 1977 and his second No Frills (both Atlantic Records) in 1978. In 1981, Farner and Don Brewer launched a new Grand Funk lineup with bassist Dennis Bellinger and recorded two albums, Grand Funk Lives and What’s Funk?. Farner performed solo again with 1988’s Just Another Injustice on Frontline Records. His third Frontline release was 1991’s Some Kind of Wonderful, which included a revamped version of the Grand Funk classic of the same name. Farner found success with John Beland’s Ain’t It Amazing, which earned him a Dove Award nomination and No. 2 on the Contemporary Christian Music Chart. In the 1990s, Farner formed Lismark Communications with former Freedom Reader editor Steve Lisuk. Soon after, Farner began re-releases of his solo album on his own label, LisMark Records. Fana toured from 1994 to 1995 with Ringo Starr’s all-star cast, which also included Randy Bachman, John Entwistle, Felix Cavalier, Billy Zach Starkey, the son of Preston and Starr. In the late 1990s, Farner reunited with Grand Funk, but left after three years to resume his solo career. He is currently touring with his band N’rG, which mixes Grand Funk songs with Farner’s solo work. Farner had a pacemaker implanted in 2012 after eight years of heart disease.
