I must have been living under a rock or something like that for a while now, but I just found out that Dan Hill is Canadian. Plus, he lives in my neck of the woods in a area called the “The Beach” or some call it “The Beaches”. As it turns out, there are tons of musicians who live or lived in our area.
I found this out by reading my Maclean’s Magazine on the Feb., 25th, 2008 version. The article was written by Dan Hill and his son. It was about his son’s friend, and how he got in trouble with the law. It told the tale of how this person almost destroyed his family and how they got through it in one piece.
After reading this article before going to work the other day, I asked people at work if had met him and some of the older nurses said yes they had. He was just like a everyday guy with looks that kill. He started out his career playing in little venues like The Riverboat in downtown Toronto which most of the staff remember seeing him play there.
I like some of his music but not enough to go out and buy all of his albums. It would be neat to see him live and maybe go backstage and chat or jam, but I can say that I’m not that big of a fan. I just thought I’d tell you about this one.
Keep on Jammin’
