Online Museum of Canadian Music an inspirational joy

I grew up in an era where independent Canadian music took a cue from punks and folkies and DIY exploded in the late 70s and early 80s. Nobody had to wait to get signed...

In Vancouver (with Joey Power and The Reactors), I was fortunate to open for acts like The Subhumans, The Modernettes and The Young Canadians (initially called the K-Tels) and also got to see DOA a bunch of times in 1978 and 1979, and became friends with Joey, Randy, Chuck and their manager, Ken Lester. These friendships would prove invaluable when we were launching Joe College and The Rulers in 1980 in Toronto.

This new Museum of Canadian Music truly honours those foundational years and offers up pioneering acts from Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario and across this great land. Best of all, 90% of the proceeds from music sales go to the artists!!!
