Dave, Simon and Roy from Intechange
'75 was a wild year for me in many ways. I was managing the east Burlington progressive rock group Darwin (singer Bill Wood was later best known for his work with The Oh No's and Eye Eye) at the beginning of the year, but by the end of the year I was handling Interchange (Simon Leblovic, Larry Boyd, Roy Furness, and Dave Matthews from Burlington, Wayne Nagy from Mississauga), more of an Aerosmith / Rolling Stones style combo that did a wicked version of Dream On, which I pitched to Toronto record label types as a single. Three months later Aerosmith released it as a single, even though it was from an older album, and it became their first major international hit.
Interchange's singer, Simon Leblovic, went on to lead various bands including The Loved Ones and Rocking Horse, eventually ending up in Toronto as Simon Slinger, fronting The Start, who had a minor Cancon hit with Hey You, before he moved to Japan and started a family with a young lady there.
