Grand Funk Railroad's Mark Farner Recovering From Pacemaker Surgery

Mark Farner of the legendary classic rock group Grand Funk Railroad is reportedly recovering comfortably after receiving pacemaker surgery. The 64-year-old had the pacemaker installed recently, and his wife Lesia broke news of his progress on his official website.

"Back home now and settled in," she wrote. "Mark is doing well. He's very sore and has had the wind knocked out of his sails temporarily. Doc said don't baby him so he's been up and around a bit. He's a trooper!"

She added: "He's making a lot of effort to not let the stiffness set in so he doesn't lose range of motion. The plan is to finish out the calendar for the year, take it easy over the winter and come back strong for 2013. Mark is in good spirits and still has that sense of humor about him. Says he eager to get back on stage. Doc says no problem (and that) he'll be back at it in no time!"
