I am new to the site, and I am also from the Great White North. Curious to know, other than RUSH what are some of the favorite Canadian rockers in your music collection.
I am currently listening to two amazing new albums from north of the 49th. Killer Dwarfs "Start @ One" and Coney Hatch "Four"
Devin Townsend/Strapping Young Lad
Just some from the top of my head. used to like Helix way back when, don't really care much for them anymore. Sometimes I like Triumph, sometimes not.
Triumph, Pat Travers, Bachman Turner Overdrive, April Wine, and Frank Marino.
Forgot about Pat!
Also forgot about Men Without Hats, but they're not metal. Right?
I'm not well versed on Canadian bands in general, but I like Loverboy, some Triumph and Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
If I am not mistaken, I believe that The Guess Who (think "American Woman") is a Canadian group. Of course, Loverboy and Rush have already been mentioned. I think I also read somewhere that Steppenwolf was also Canadian, but I might be wrong about that one.
WOW to Coney Hatch!!! Totally whiffed on them, until now... Check out this tune!!
Other than the guitar solo, I'm not blown away at all. But I do like Triumph and Loverboy.
hmmm, we are rough bunch to figure out lately...
Not really. Seems like were just opposites. I would be known as Bizarro Scott, Bizarro Jon or Bizarro Niels. And everybody else likewise.
Neil Young (though he's not really hard rock or metal)
