This thread is devoted to Canadian Rock Musicians and their songs over the past 50 years.

Here's one I've rather enjoyed

Dude, Canadian shit sucks! It's not that we're any less talented, but simply the US lifestyle and paycheque just cannot be resisted!

So, we move to NY or LA!

Lots of Canadians infiltrating their shit! OK though... We look the same, and talk/sing almost the same also, so nobody knows...

December 4, 2000. Scott Smith of Lover Boy is washed overboard. He or his body was not recovered. I sold this boat to Scott in May of the same year, in San Rafael Ca. It was a Westsail 32. He and his crew were sailing back from the Farallones Islands, about 30 miles west of San Francisco. A terrible time of year to be doing this. The boat is a heavy crushing boat, and was capable. Apparently Scott was not teathered to something solid and was washed overboard. I have searched for this boat off and on for the last 15 years. True story.

Wow, that's very interesting but I thought this thread was about Canadian musicians?

Mentioning the "band" (cringe) "Lover Boy" with anything having to do with music is kinda off topic don'tcha think???? ac_toofunny

Wasnt he a Canadian rock musician? Are you saying this band is or was lame? Maybe I'm not getting your sarcasm. I heard of them before. When the boat broker called me for a demo sail, he never mentioned who this person was. Anyway he bought my boat. Not long after he killed himself on her.

You got the Canadian part right and the "lame" part especially correct.

Although 'lame" may be an understatement. Loverboy, like so many so-called rock bands from the late 70s and 80s were the epitome of "corporate rock" garbage.

Well Ace, not all folks, incl. our Yank friends livin' south of the 49th would agree with your assessment, Bud.

Here's one of America's biggest stars wowing the crowd in LA with what she considers one of Canada's Best:

...that's fairly impressive that these sisters could receive accolades from someone like Taylor Swift in what most consider the media capital of the USA & the world. In other words, their own backyard.

You don't know me Rene. You are right, I don't know shit about Canadian rock bands. He did buy my boat, and paid me in cash. I could tell he fell in love with that boat. It was what he was looking for. It's really ashamed he lost his life aboard. I first found out from a friend who knew I owned and sold that boat to Scott. I moved out of the U.S. soon after I sold her.

Here's an old Gordon Lightfoot tune sung by an Irish band, the Johnstons:

phpBB [video]


Upon the bitter green she walked the hills above the town
Echoed to her footsteps as soft as eiderdown
Waiting for her master to kiss away her tears
Waiting through the years

Bitter green they called her walking in the sun
Loving everyone that she met
Bitter green they called her waiting in the sun
Waiting for someone to take her home

Some say he was a sailor who died away at sea
Some say he was a prisoner who never was set free
Lost upon the ocean he died there in the mist
Dreaming of a kiss

Bitter green they called her walking in the sun
Loving everyone that she met
Bitter green they called her waiting in the sun
Waiting for someone to take her home

But now the bitter green is gone the hills have turned to rust
There comes a weary stranger whose tears fall in the dust
Kneeling by the churchyard in the autumn mist
Dreaming of a kiss

Bitter green they called her walking in the sun
Loving everyone that she met
Bitter green they called her waiting in the sun
Waiting for someone to take her home

Bitter green they called her walking in the sun
Loving everyone that she met
Bitter green they called her waiting in the sun
Waiting for someone
To take her home

Martha and the Muffins are a Canadian new wave band, active from 1977 to the present. Although they only had one major international hit single (1980's "Echo Beach") under their original band name, they had a number of hits in their native Canada, and the core members of the band also charted in Canada and internationally as M + M.

Edward Bear was a Toronto-based Canadian pop-rock group, formed originally in 1966 by Larry Evoy and Craig Hemming. The band signed with Capitol Records in 1969 with a lineup of Evoy, Danny Marks and Paul Weldon. Marks left the band the following year and was succeeded by Roger Ellis. The band had several chart successes in the early 1970s before disbanding in 1974. Their name is derived from A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh, whose "proper" name is Edward Bear. Their top selling singles include "You, Me and Mexico", "Last Song", and "Close Your Eyes", all three of which were Top 5 hits in Canada and charted well in the United States.

Big Sugar officially formed in 1988 in Toronto, Ontario, consisting of vocalist and guitarist Gordie Johnson, bassist Terry Wilkins, and drummer Al Cross, though the three musicians had already played together for several years as a supporting band for Molly Johnson's jazz performances and as an informal jam band with members of the Bourbon Tabernacle Choir. After Molly Johnson returned to rock music with Infidels, she helped her former bandmates to secure a record deal; their eponymous debut album was released in 1991 on Hypnotic Records.
