    Here's a great Canadian artist who I discovered back in the seventies.
    I don't believe he got the recognition he deserved.
    I played this album to death back in college.
    I hope that a fellow Canadian surprises me and says "Yeah,I remember David Wiffen".

    Another part of Canadian history.
    Ian Tyson wrote this iconic song.

    The Northern Pikes! Haven’t thought of them for a while but yes... They were awesome.

    Also Grapes of Wrath. I always liked their stuff. I Got to know their drummer Chris Hooper through some friends. He’s always been super friendly and low key. I almost forget that he and his band were rock stars until he mentions some off the hook situation that happened on some tour and it makes me remember, oh yeah, you’re that guy.

    In 1977ish my father and I walked into Windsor's Long & McQuade. I wanted to upgrade from my plywood Tele copy and we were just going to "look".
    There was a band at the counter selling some gear mid-tour and had a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe with a Dimarzio in the bridge on the counter. It was $325.
    I worked some kind of magic on my dad, begging shamelessly, and he bought me that guitar right then.
    And that band was...Teaze!
    I sold it long ago but my first bands and first gigs were with that guitar.


    Kevin Breit was mentioned earlier in the thread, I love how he twists this classic:
