HighBar150x150.png


5. The High Bar Gang Lost and Undone 
(True North Records)
Available on: iTunes
Unlike any other record released this year. The title says it all – these are lost songs given new life. A fine mix of Gospel and Country/folk/bluegrass, it’s old songs made new with layers of real voices and very real instruments, all watched over by the ears of Ry Cooder.
See them live. Delightful.

4. Blue Rodeo In our Nature
 (Warner Music)
Available on: iTunes
Because they’ve been making great music for two generations of Canadians, the question is ‘Do we take them for granted’? I think we do. This really is Greg Keelor’s LP, not that Jim Cuddy disappears but Greg had a lot to say and sing. It’s fair to say that Blue Rodeo are the sound of Canada. High Country Harmonies.

3. Serena Ryder Harmony 
(Capitol/Universal)
Available on: iTunes
Yes the LP was released late 2012 but it spent its sensational life being discovered all during 2013. Gold and Platinum status awarded in 2013. A whole new voice for Serena.
More please.

2. Lee Harvey Osmond The Folk Sinner 
(Latent Recordings)
Available on: iTunes
The pride of Hamilton, Ontario – the ever shifting, ever changing Tom Wilson, of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. This is his side project – something to keep him off the streets and out of the gangs. Some side project!!

1. Arcade Fire Reflektor
 (Merge Records)
Available on: iTunes
Will show up on everybody’s best of list this year. A Grammy for Album of the Year, a sensational club concert after SNL, a 20-minute film Here Comes The Night and so much more. But that’s all filigree. This is all about the music. Each and every song is complete and connected to the next. A true LP, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the Beatles. And they’re Canadian eh!!

Interview with Will Forte and Terry David Mulligan:

Will Forte

Will Forte


Forte was age 32 before he came to the public’s attention on “Saturday Night Live”(1975), but had been working in comedy since 1997. Forte is the son of artist Patricia and financial broker Orville Willis Forte III (divorced) and has one older sister, Michelle. A creative and artist child, he was an athlete (football and swimming) in high school and voted Best Personality at Acalanes High School. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in History, Forte had a brief career at a brokerage house before deciding to try comedy. Although he rarely performed stand-up, he joined the world- famous “Groundlings” and was hired as a writer for the series, “The Jenny McCarthy Show” (1997), The Army Show, and The David Letterman Show. He eventually caught the attention of Carsey-Werner executive Tom Werner when he wrote a pilot about two childlike idiot brothers (eventually turned into the film, The Brothers Solomon (2007)) and was hired for the shows, “3rd Rock from the Sun” (1996) and “That ’70s Show” (1998).
In 2002, Forte moved from his home state of California to New York City to join “Saturday Night Live” (1975) as a writer and cast member. Although known as shy and reserved in his personal life, Forte was one of the individuals responsible for the shows move to absurd, surrealist comedy. Along with voice-over acting, guest appearances on television and small roles in films, Forte had his biggest opportunities to be a movie star with films he wrote. Forte wrote the screenplay for The Brothers Solomon (2007) (and had the leading role of childlike “Dean Solomon”) and played the title role and co-wrote the SNL film MacGruber (2010). Although both films were given small budgets ($10,000,000 each), the were both considered box-office and critical failures, although they do have a cult following.
After MacGruber’s theatrical release, Forte left SNL for personal and professional reasons, although he has returned as a guest performer. Forte has had a recurring role on the series 30 Rock and made numerous other guest appearances on other TV comedies. Since leaving SNL, he has also increased his work as a voice artist and appeared in 5 movies (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy, Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, Rock of Ages, That’s My Boy, and The Watch).
Since 2012, he has moved into dramatic and straight roles on a television pilot titled Rebounding by the producers of Modern Family and Irish film Run and Jump. In August 2012, he was cast (and first choice) in the much anticipated Alexander Payne film Nebraska, despite rumors that higher profile actors such as Casey Affleck and Paul Rudd were interested in the role.

Book Reviews – RockStar Weekly

Terry David Mulligan - Mulligan's Stew: My Life So FarAnyone over the age of 30 should recognize the name Terry David Mulligan as a radio personality somewhere in the country. He’s been around the block in such places as Toronto, Regina, Red Deer and Vancouver; and most currently on CKUA in Alberta as the host of his long-running program Mulligan’s Stew.  If that doesn’t ring a bell, then maybe you’ll remember his friendly face as the host (or VJ) of the national television programs Good Rockin’ Tonite and MuchWest. Either way, Terry has been the one guiding our musical interests since the 60s through his celebrity interviews and love of rock and roll, whether we realized it or not.
In his biography Mulligan’s Stew – My Life So Far, Terry takes us down memory lane during the dawn of a new and exciting musical form called rock and roll. His original calling as a Mountie in Red Deer was for naught as his ears and soul were drawn to the glamour and quick fame of radio and the new music that he wanted to share with his family, friends and listeners.
I think everyone who has seen him has had a Mulligan Moment – one of those unforgettable moments when an interview captured our attention and stayed with us through the years. My Mulligan Moment came when Terry was hosting Good Rockin’ Tonite in the 80s and his guest for the show was KISS leader Paul Stanley, who offered his sunglasses to a viewer during the interview. I never did get the glasses, but it was a moment this young KISS fan remembers well.
Mulligan’s Stew is a well written and compelling read that sheds some insight not only on Terry’s life, but also early glimpses of Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Bryan Adams and The Guess Who. The chatty writing style gives the book a bit of a personal feel and at times can feel like you’re there having a coffee hearing all these great brushes with the famous.
One of the highlights of the book happens in Vancouver in the late 60s at the height of the Summer of Love, which includes endless music festivals highlighted by an interview with Jimi Hendrix and shopping on Davie Street with Jim Morrison, who was looking for early Hemingway books and Beatle boots. Vancouver would never been the same, especially once Hendrix, Morrison and Joplin passed away within months of each other.
It’s also a good account of some of Canada’s early FM radio moments as stations learned to develop their own style in a new and quickly evolving medium. And like any good DJ in Canada, he’s seen it all and hit the airwaves across the country on several stations during his career.
Mulligan’s Stew is a must have for Canadian music fans. The accounts of early Guess Who and Bryan Adams are worth the cover price alone – especially the Guess Who’s failed attempt at a 1967 tour beginning in London.
Not as personal and in depth as other biographies, Terry mostly skips discussing his early personal life, and instead jumps right into the Mountie years and the music. There are some personal and intimate moments scattered throughout, but this book is mostly about the public side of the DJ, VJ and actor that has been a part of our lives for about 50 years.

Today's North Shore News – apparently I'm Not dead yet!!

 

http://www.nsnews.com/entertainment/Vintage+stuff/6786708/story.html
TERRY DAVID MULLIGAN IS NOT DEAD.
“Some people actually have the gall to say, ‘Hey whatever happened to you?'” the DJ vents. “Someone actually said, ‘I thought you died.'”
The actor, interviewer, author, former Mountie, and advocate for the free flow of wine across Canada is decidedly vital for someone who downed drinks with Janis Joplin in the 1960s and endured the relentless PR machine of glam rock giants Kiss in the 1970s.
Mulligan, 69, was recently named Broadcaster of the Year by the British Columbia Association of Broadcasters.
Speaking over the phone, the North Vancouver resident seems tireless as he recaps his colourful career while prepping the next instalment of his rock radio show, Mulligan Stew.
“I’m going to be editing and working while I’m talking to you if that’s OK,” he says, speaking with a swiftness that has not slowed in nearly 50 years on the air. “If I can’t do both I’ll admit defeat.”
While the whirring of audiotape sounds in the background, Mulligan tears into Canada’s liquor control board, whom he dubs: “True, bureaucratic bullies.”
Protesting a 1928 law that restricts the transportation of wine across provincial borders, Mulligan, the co-host of wine-swilling travel TV show Hollywood and Vines decided he would risk arrest to call attention to what he sees as an obsolete and unfair rule.
“I was just so pissed off,” he says. “The liquor control boards love to hit the wineries over the head with the threat of charging them in a court of law because they’re shipping wines from B.C. to Alberta.”
Heading from B.C. to the Banff food and wine festival earlier this summer, Mulligan hit the road as a bootlegger with thunder as his engine and chardonnay as his load.
“I sent two registered letters to the liquor control boards in Victoria and Edmonton . . . . and said this is what I’m doing and this is why I’m doing it, and if you have charges, go ahead,” he says. “The media showed up, and God bless ’em, they told the story.”
In Ottawa, the senate is currently considering passing a bill that would do away with the regulation and allow wine to be shipped across provincial boundaries, but Mulligan has not relaxed on the issue.
“Some of the provinces are going to play hardball because they’ve had their hand in our pockets for a long time and they’ve gotten very used to taking money from us and they’re not going to give up this pipeline easily,” Mulligan says, pausing. “Some of them are just going to be dorks.”
Growing up in the section of North Vancouver known as Skunk Hollow in the 1940s and ’50s, Mulligan has been dealing with bullies and dodging gangs since rock ‘n’ roll was called race music.
The son of a game warden, Mulligan found his father’s livelihood often put him in conflict with his schoolmates.
“My father was busting the same kids that I was going to school with . . . . they were carrying guns or BB guns,” he recalls. “I’d know when one of them got busted because they’d punch my lights out at school or pin me into a corner: ‘Your old man took my gun, man. I want it back,'” he says, imitating the schoolyard snarl.
Mulligan says he could sometimes promise his way out of danger, but other times, the future 21 Jumpstreet guest star resorted to more drastic moves.
“On occasion, when I thought I was seriously in trouble, I would take that BB gun and I would return it to its owner and my father, thankfully, never missed it,” he says.
Living near the intersection of Fell Avenue and 17th Street, Mulligan found respite from disgruntled firearms enthusiasts in his father’s collection of jazz records.
But as Red Robinson brought rock ‘n’ roll to Vancouver’s airwaves, the Mulligan family headed for the Interior.
“When I got to Kamloops, the only time there was rock ‘n’ roll on the radio was 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
When it was daylight out, and kids wouldn’t riot. That was the thinking then,” Mulligan explains.
But while Robinson was out of reach, another DJ, one even farther away, was within earshot, depending on the weather.
“If I took the cover off my radio and lay my alarm clock on a certain wire, it became the aerial and I could hear Wolfman Jack. It was fantastic,” Mulligan says, recalling the raspy-voiced disc jockey. “I had never heard anybody like that, and I’d never heard anybody play R&B and blues on the radio.”
After coming of age in Kamloops, Mulligan decided he needed to get out of Kamloops and promptly joined the RCMP.
In his autobiography Mulligan Stew: My Life. . . So Far, Mulligan writes about hearing Love Me Do by the Beatles for the first time while riding around Red Deer, Alberta in his police cruiser.
“The music had an innocence and a joy that brought such happiness to people. I can’t remember when that has happened since,” he writes.
He also writes about volunteering to stakeout a group of hookers who were working right next to a radio station.
The station was a converted two-storey house, and once inside Mulligan received a crash course in radio from DJ Hal Weaver.
Watching the DJ spin Beatles 45s on his finger and kick his chair like Jerry Lee Lewis convinced Mulligan he wanted to be on the air.
“Hal Weaver became my Wolfman Jack,” he says.
He soon left the police force, but when asked if the experience stayed with him, Mulligan replies emphatically.
“Oh God yes. Absolutely, totally,” he says, crediting the experience for instilling his strong work ethic.
Mulligan’s decision to leave the RCMP was cemented during a trip to Banff in the summer of 1964.
“I came across and spent time with all of the free spirits who were hitchhiking across Canada in that summer,” he recalls of the burgeoning hippie movement of the 1960s.
“On my way back from Banff to Red Deer I thought, ‘Who are you? Are you a Mountie or are you a free spirit?” he recounts. “That’s when I decided to leave the force.”
Mulligan overflows with enthusiasm when asked about the records he played during his first stretch on the air, listing tracks by The Kinks, The Who, and the long version of “House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals.
“Every day brought a new group and a new single that killed, just killed,” he says.
But while he still plays some of those tunes, Mulligan is careful not to neglect the present, a lesson he may have learned when he asked Jimi Hendrix about reviving the blues.
“It’s no revival, kid, because why go back into the past?” Hendrix replies in the 1968 interview.
Now blending groups like folk band Trampled by Turtles and Winnipeg singer/ songwriter Del Barber into his playlist, Mulligan seems to have retained Hendrix’s advice.
“The trap I don’t want to get involved in is just re-living my life through music, because there’s some really fine music being made today,” Mulligan says. “The problem is that Canadian radio is so lame that most of it goes un-played, which is why I ended up at CKUA in Alberta for the last 16 years because they embrace new music, they celebrate it, they play Canadian music without making any apologies, and I finally found my musical home.
I found the same station I heard in my head.”
Still, Mulligan has a particular fondness for many rock stars of the 1960s.
“Janis Joplin,” he answers when asked about his favourite interviews. “You had to drink with Janis in order to get the interview, and she would drink me under the table and would laugh me silly because I couldn’t keep up with her. . . .
There was no bullshit. She was just a girl from Port Arthur, Texas, and played no games, hadn’t been micro-managed, hadn’t been taken through polishing school like the Motown acts. It was like I was talking to my sister.”
Conversely, one of his most disappointing interviews was the leather-clad frontman for The Doors.
“Jim Morrison was totally bizarre,” Mulligan says. “He talked in tongues, these sort of half-sentences and bits and pieces of poetry and really never found out much about him at all. So much so that I don’t think I ever ran the interview.”
He had a different kind of disappointment when trying to talk with the members of Kiss.
“They were on their own planet, and they were going to say what they wanted to say no matter what question you asked them.”
Much like his father’s profession had endangered him, Mulligan’s four children were affected by his career, especially when he started playing music on TV.
“When they were going to school and I was doing Muchmusic . . . . they got smacked around by kids at school saying, ‘Your old man won’t play any heavy metal,'” he says, imitating that familiar schoolyard snarl.
“They kind of took it out on me in their own way,” Mulligan says.
The reaction from his children ranged from indifference to pawning his CDs, according to Mulligan, who laughs at the larceny.
“I’d go to play a CD, and there’s no CD in the thing. I’m about two minutes away from actually going on air and I have no music and so I’ve had to apologize on occasion saying, ‘I’m sorry, but it’s been stolen, and you know by who.'”
But while his sons converted music to beer money, his daughter started taking an interest in her father’s work.
Kate Mulligan credited her father’s musical taste and counsel for her own transformation in a piece she wrote for The Tyee called Growing Up Mulligan.
“My dad gave me my first record player. It was fully restored into an aged brown leather suitcase, with speakers on the side, making it portable and incredibly unique,” she writes.
Asked what’s next in his career, Mulligan is quick with an answer.
“Retirement,” he says. “Well, my form of retirement.”
While audiotape continues to whir in the background, Mulligan reflects on the criticism he’s absorbed, as well as that one guy who thought he was dead.
“You have to be prepared for almost anything whenever you leave the house,” he says. “If you wait for the praise or the damnation to show up, you’re not really living your life. You have to move on and just live your life, simple as that. I mean, you only get one shot. How pissed off would you be at the end of your life if you thought, ‘Well, I lived my life according to somebody else’s views of who I should be?'”

Bryan Adams defined by drive

Bryan Adams’ first cross Canadian tour in 20 years: 20 shows in 20 cities. • Rogers Arena • June 16, 8 p.m.

Photograph by: John Mahoney , THE GAZETTE

Hit singles make the musician’s name. Reinvention and recycling are key to career longevity. Bryan Adams gets that.
His nearly four decades in the entertainment industry are a study in how to do it right.
The Lynn Valley lad was just 15 years old when he joined Vancouver’s glitter rocking Sweeney Todd replacing departed vocalist Nick Gilder. With the single “Roxy Roller” ruling Canada, the band was a hot ticket. Filling in for the talented, more experienced Gilder couldn’t have been easy. Andrew Molloy of Victoria rockers Budokan recalls the young singer owning the frontman’s role.
“The first concert I ever attended was Trooper with Sweeney Todd opening in Victoria in fall 1977,” says Molloy. “If Wishes Were Horses had just been released with Adams singing on it and the band opened with the epic title tune. He came out in a top hat, long shag cut and was awesome. It set me on the course I continue to follow and its funny that chapter has been airbrushed out of his history and I don’t understand why.”
Perhaps the budding singer/songwriter was thinking ahead to what would follow the short glam explosion, anticipating the move back to jeans, T-shirt and leather jacket power rock. He may have wanted to tip the top hat to the past as he and writing partner, and Prism drummer, Jim Vallance set to making history. Three years after that concert, his solo debut and single “Let Me Take You Dancing” arrived to favourable response. The follow-up album, You Want It You Got It was certified gold in Canada. Broadcaster Terry David Mulligan was impressed by the Sweeney Todd-era artist, awed by what followed.
“You could tell, without ever even seeing him on stage, that he was going to do exactly what he wanted because he was so driven,” says Mulligan. “I began to look for that kind of drive in other artists because he wore it like a badge; determined not to be denied. When “Straight From the Heart” hist Top 10 in the U.S., I was in San Francisco and thought “holy spit, how about that.” By the time I got back to Vancouver in ‘84 it was his town to rock.”
That song and title track to his 1983 third album, Cuts Like A Knife, establilshed Adams as an international act. The writing with Vallance was honing in on exactly the singer’s best qualities — that gravelly voice, big arena choruses and lyrical directness — delivering solid song after song. Cuts Like a Knife went triple platinum (300,000) in Canada and platinum (1,000,000) in the U.S. Hamilton, ON., musician and producer Colin Cripps (Crash Vegas, Junkhouse) doesn’t mince words Adams’ influence on his career.
“30 years ago I moved to Vancouver to get a music career going largely because of Bryan since it was where he got started so I figured it might help me,” says Cripps. “After some months of getting nowhere, realizing how much harder it really was to get noticed no matter where you were, I moved back east feeling somewhat defeated. I could never have imagined that 20 years later we would become friends and work together.”
In 1984, Reckless sealed the deal. Huge in North America, Europe and Asia, it lead to Grammy nominations, MTV awards a string of JUNOs and sold out tours. Into the Fire (1987) didn’t match Reckless but it’s rare to see any act pull off such a coup in succession. There were still two top 10 international hits on the album, “Hearts On Fire” and “Heat of the Night.” The tide was beginning to change towards dance-pop sounds that weren’t his forte. From glam-mer to rocker to romantic was next. “Everything I Do (I Do It For You)” from 1991s Waking Up The Neighbours appeared in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and was his second Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit. In England, it spent a record 16 consecutive weeks at that position in the singles charts. A Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television followed. With ballads comes bad-mouthing and it isn’t hard to find people who weren’t loving the love songs. Veteran hardcore punk Joey Keithley of D.O.A. fame didn’t care.
“You know Randy Rampage (bass) used to jam with him when they both were kids in North Van,” says Keithley. “But Terry Jacks and Dale Weiss of Track Records got us and Bryan Adams together for a two night stand at the 86th Street Cabaret to raise funds and awareness about all the pollution mills were dumping in the ocean. It went great and I wish I had footage of Adams and I trading lines in a duet of “Stand By Me” on night two. He was really a regular guy.”
Perhaps that regular joe status is what allowed Adams to get up close and personal with supermodels and celebrities pursuing his passion for photography in the nineties with books Made In Canada (1999), Haven (2000) and American Women (2005). As his musical career motored on overseas, it had hit legacy status at home with those early hits still in heavy rotation but newer material getting incresingly less attention. Jack FM assistant programmer Terry Chan says that doesn’t mean he doesn’t matter. Adams remains relevant with works such as 2005s “Don’t Give Up” with electro-dance duo Chicane and his sold out acoustic tour and live album Bare Bones (2011).
“It’s all about the songs and songs such as “Summer of ‘69” are as relevant to listeners today as when it came out almost 30 years ago,” says Chan. “He also has maintained this nice guy image for all that time which, let’s be honest, not everyone has. My last point, most important, is that when he plays live whether it’s solo acoustic or with his band they just kill it. Even at age 50-plus, he’s stood the test of time.”
Live Nation Canada president Paul Haagenson says that the new cross-country tour will not only leave longtime fans smiling but likely win Adams some new ones. This tour is the exact opposite of the acoustic one.
“Lots of artists when they scale down like that solo acoustic tour give the impression that they won’t be scaling up again,” says Haagenson. “In his case, he’s doing 20 cities with the band, selling out everywhere with a bigger and better production from his usually modest one. It gives him more scope and grandeur than previously but it’s really the fact that the material, the performances and the energy are as phenomenal as they’ve ever been.”
Haagenson echoes Mulligan’s estimation of the musician saying that the book is far from written yet. It’s anyone’s guess what Adams’ next move will be. For the moment, he’s recycling the hard rocker and that’s a hit (again).

ENDURING INFLUENCE
 
Just how much of an enduring influence on local musicians is Bryan Adams? A lot based on the responses received from members of Marianas Trench and The Left.
Matt Webb (Marianas Trench guitarist): “Bryan Adams is a total legend. What musician wouldn’t want a career like his? 8 billion #1 hits, myriads of records sold, owner of the coolest studio in the world. He is someone we certainly look up to and has done wonderful things for Canadian music.”
“Many people aren’t aware that BA owns a recording studio in Vancouver which he rents out dirt cheap to musicians from all walks of life, using his success to give back to the music community. Having had the privilege of working there several times, I can say that Marianas Trench records sure wouldn’t sound the same without BA. So . . . thanks!”
Josh Wyper (The Left, keyboardist/vocals): “When I was developing my career starting out, there weren’t a lot of musicians who I could model my style and career goals after. After hearing his duet with Spice Girls’ Melanie C, “When You’re Gone,” and I thought that smoky vocal style was something worth striving for even if it isn’t as popular at the moment. Without going too far into it, his voice and his writing all have a very distinct feel that suit him and aren’t stylistically written to be hits. They are just classy and unique to his style.”
