WHAT WAS ONCE OLD IS NEW AGAIN

Johnny Lovesin2

By Bill Delingat

When it comes to fashion, trends and music some also say it has come full circle.

Led Zeppelin’s reunion in London, The Who’s tunes on CSI, Beatles mixed box sets and The Beatles Band war game and now the Rolling Stones remix and DVD of “Exile on Main Street”. These rock giants of years gone by have found new fans in the internet jungle and on the flat screens. Well what about the Canadians?

These last few months we have seen the anniversaries and reunions of some of Canada’s rock stars and institutions, filling the desire of new generations of listeners and artists that want to learn more of where it all began and where it might be going..

This past month Johnnie Lovesin turned 61, Kensington Sound Studios celebrated 40 years, Goddo hit the stage for a documentary, celebrating 35years of bad boy rock, and Triumph releases a new compilation CD. Rush has brought their own testimonial to being on the road with a box set DVD as well,so as not to be forgotten for all those earlier tunes their new fans are requesting.

Canada’s rockers of days gone by are back in your face and we have the stories to tell.
