Canadian Music Fast Facts
Anyone who grew up in Canada in the '50s, '60s and '70s, who attended high school dances, quaffed a few at a local watering hole, or passed through the turnstiles at one of Canada's concert halls, knows about the great music produced in this country during that era.It was a sound that created lasting memories for millions of Canadians. How can we ever forget dancing close in steamy high school gymnasiums, bouts of temporary deafness after a high-decibel evening in a smoky downtown club, or the thrill of seeing a favourite band live?
Canadian Music Fast Facts: Profiles of Canada’s Pop Music Pioneers will help rekindle those memories and provide valuable information rarely found elsewhere. Based on interviews with some 300 musicians, producers, record company reps, agents and managers, Canadian Music Fast Facts captures the trials and tribulations musicians encountered as they fought for fame and fortune in the dog-eat-dog world of rock and roll.
The 150 mini-profiles that make up Canadian Music Fast Facts will bring you close to the life, then and now, experienced by scores of Canadian performers. We believe this compilation is one of the most comprehensive on the many musicians who toiled and triumphed in this country, in the U.S., and abroad. And the “Fast Facts” formula is a quick way to find out about your favourite Canadian musicians and what they did once they stepped out of the limelight.
Canadian Music Fast Facts, published in 1991, will re-acquaint you with such performers as Lighthouse, Susan Jacks, The Crew-Cuts, A Foot in Coldwater, Lucille Starr, Ocean, Steppenwolf, The Ugly Ducklings, Edward Bear, Ken Tobias, and many more! READ A FREE SAMPLE!
