    I respect them as musicians but never listen to them. Too many disjointed and truncated rhythms for me. Sabbath would do it and make it work. How many riffs in sabbath bloody sabbath? And all excellent.

    Being Canadian and a Rock fan, of course I love Rush, The Tragically Hip, The Guess Who, Blue Rodeo and Voivod. But my all-time favourite will always be Max Webster.

    The Band, obviously. But they’re almost so much of an institution that they don’t count. The Canadian band I listen to most? That’s easy:

    Not bands per se but Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot. Canada has given the world some amazing music. Oh Canada thank you so much.

    I thought of Neil but it seemed like cheating.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love Neil, he was my rock guitar hero, but he’s lived in California for almost his entire career.

    And then there’s the whole “band” thing.
