    I guess I'm going to post my dirty dozen,one at a time.
    The greatest new talent to come out of Canada for me would have to be Larnell Lewis.
    This guy is a killer drummer.

    So many greats mentioned!
    The Ugly Ducklings are a largely forgotten psychedelic garage band from 60s Toronto.


    Voivod is a thrash band from early 80s Quebec.

    and Neil Young.

    To be fair, even if it's just those two, that's enough to put a country on the map.

    This thread is making me feel nostalgic today.
    That picture was taken at a gig we were doing in St. Catharines,Ontario circa 1968 or 69.
    I believe it was the downtown Legion hall.
    We were all still in High School.
    I was 15 and Neil was 16.
    We were too young to play in bars,but back then there were more than enough one night shows to keep us very busy.
    The Majority was a mix of rock and soul music.
    At 16 Neil was already a powerhouse of a drummer and looking back now,I can see the seeds of his future forming.
    During band breaks you would find him by himself,hidden away reading science fiction novels.
