Happy Birthday Simon SLAM!!! Long may you run!

Simon Slinger from The Start celebrating B-day in Kyoto, Japan

Regular readers of the Original Joe College blog will remember Simon's tales of the Burlington / Hamilton rock music scene in the late 1970s, and we hope to share more of Simon's memories in coming weeks. We're also putting a book together regarding Golden Horseshoe bands from that era.

Happy Birthday Simon!!! If there's one thing I could've helped you with in your music career, I wish you would have let me help you pick your punk name. Though Simon Slinger wasn't a bad handle for the period when you were frontman for The Start, it's shallowness and ultra-obvious sexual connotation means that it may not have translated well to a solo career, which may have been a factor in preventing you from going that route. I would have preferred something like Simon Slam or Simon LeBeau...

Well, that's water under the bridge and it is what it is. The main thing is we made a lot of fun music in those days, and laid a foundation that allows today's youth almost complete creativity in their musical output. Amen to that.
