The Blooming 

This is my first album.  Recorded way back at Echo Music, St. John's, Nf, May-June 1987.  It was distributed on cassette tape!

I Left Hockey for Rock and Roll 

Grade 9 and 10, in Regina, Saskatchewan, was a turning point for me.  My dream to play in the NHL morphed into rocking it on the skins with AJAL.



my dream in high school
was with the band
when my pearl drums
beat out my playoff plans
i used to play peewee
but i got hurt
then i heard 'tom sawyer'
and became neil peart
i left hockey for rock and roll...
it wasn't because i was a nerd
it wasn't because my team
kept on comin' in third
it wasn't because i wasn't a jock
it was all because of johann sebastian bach
i left hockey for rock and roll...
my dream in high school
was in the band
but now i take a slapshot every chance i can
cause i left hockey for rock and roll
but i came back
whattya think about that, dad?
i play hockey and rock and roll
it's good for my soul
it's good for my soul...

Jump! 

Taking these photos with Tokyo photographer Alfie Goodrich was a load of fun.  We laughed ourselves silly.  It was raining off and on and I almost had a heart attack jumping up and down so many times...one of them ended up on the inside cover of 'We Need the Electricity'.

Colorado Bound 

This is the live version of "Colorado Bound" from "We Need the Electricity".  Too bad we didn't have any fun.


My AUB-1 fretless Ampeg Bass 

Don't even ask me to sell this gem. This bass guitar  has a scroll headstock with two large F-holes.  Introduced at NAMM in 1966, a total of 1150 were built.  I have one.  Here are the pics.  I have  the original case and user's manual. Mint condition AUB-1's are rare today.  Rick Danko from The Band played one.  I absolutely love the "thump" of it. Click on the pics to read more juicy details.  R.I.P. Rick and thanks always for your inspiration. 

The Rideau Canal 

The Rideau Canal is 202 kilometers and connects Ottawa and Kingston, Ontario.  There are 24 locks.  It took a friend and me 7 days to paddle it in a canoe.
Here is the trailer of the blockbuster movie.

Elvis 

We went to Memphis one summer.  It was so hot and humid. We went to Graceland.  I interviewed this guy who was at the front of the line for a candlelight ceremony (we saw him the next day on t.v. in the airport on a CNN interview).  Listen carefully to how much Elvis means to him, how well-spoken and easy-going he is.  Then I walked and filmed the Graceland Wall.  I wrote a song to go with this video.  So many signatures...
