    I saw Rush in concert at the Philadelphia Spectrum in the mid-‘80s, when SCTV’s Count Floyd introduced them via videotape as a berrrrrrry scarrrrrrry band, boys and girls...

    I’ve liked a lot of Joni Mitchell’s songs over the years.

    This probably isn’t going to sound very cool, but in 1994, I played the daylights of Sarah McLachlan‘s Fumbling Towards Ecstasy CD. It was the first album I had heard in ages that had some of the production effects, atmosphere, and colors of Peter Gabriel’s III album and Security.

    But the definitive moment in Canadian rock was of course, Robin Scherbatsky’s “Let’s Go to the Mall:”

    He actually went on to play with one of Canadas dirty dozen.

    Almost forgot Paul James. He’s popular around here anyway. I got to meet him a few years back when The Chelsea Hotel in downtown Toronto had live music every night. He still has a show at The Phoenix every year, and the jazz festivals.

    For those who like to boogie.

    An old friend of mine, Rick Hayton played drums with Thor.
    I got nothin’ that remotely compares with that.
    The best I got was band-leading a backup band for Wanda Jackson.;):)
