Let’s Rock’s Celebration of Canadian Rock Music
To put it mildly: CANADA ROCKS!
Since the devastating loss of Neil Peart in January, I have been on a serious Canadian music bender, eh!. While Rush, Kim Mitchell and The Tragically Hip have always been on constant rotation in my cd player, it was so nice to check out all the other bands I grew up with or who have recently made a splash on the music scene in The Great White North. I could spend hours listing the bands and artists who have rocked this great nation. Neil Young, The Guess Who, Bryan Adams, April Wine, 54-40, Alanis Morissette, The Northern Pikes, The Barenaked Ladies, Anvil, Annihilator, The Pursuit of Happiness, The Grapes Of Wrath, Sass Jordan, Sebastian Bach, Sloan and more recently Monster Truck, The Sheepdogs and Crown Lands. Good Lord, the list is endless. Sometimes I think that many of these bands are Canada’s little secret. That bothers me. These bands should be required listening everywhere in the world.
Part 1 – Kevin Kane/The Grapes Of Wrath
Part 2 – Moe Berg/The Pursuit of Happiness
