Today in Canadian Rock History

June 26th

Like bacon and football, here's yet another example of our neighbors to the North trying to do things their own way....

Gordon Lightfoot
, Bryan Adams and Anne Murray each officially received a granite star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, on King Street in Toronto, on this day in 1998. They were the first three pop artists to be honored into the newly recognized group of Canadian stars. Rush and Celine Dion were added a year later, followed by Neil Young and Joni Mitchell in 2000. They were also each presented with a take-home brass and granite trophy, topped with a star created in the likeness of a maple leaf.

How did Neil Young and/or RUSH get skipped over on the first try?

Remember when you guys would go to shows and then write about it? That was awesome.

That sounds vaguely familiar... Yeah. We're still doing that. But some of us were/are on vacation the past couple weeks.

Just wait for Jimbromski's review of the Fort Reno show we caught last night... it'll blow your mind.
