Bruce joined GFRR towards the end of 2000, but he did not have band picks until the beginning of 2002.  The following is a pictured reference guide to Bruce's GFRR guitar picks to date.

Chicago Expo, November 24, 2001

Bruce enjoys his Grand Funk Railroad involvement immensely.  I'm happy for him, but selfishly, I really miss Union!

GFRR-DB1 - black on hickory - GRAND FUNK RAILROAD [over] Don Brewer signature


Note: D'Addario purchased ProMark in 2011. Around 2012 they started printing "BY D'ADDARIO" under the ProMark label. Printing the artwork on the handles means they either do not understand their endorser uses their stick tape or doesn't care. This is the artwork under the stick wrap.

GFRR-BK30 - white on pearl red
  GFRR-BK31 - black on pearl white
