There's one huge Canadian artist who I can't even remember her name. She wrote a wackload of hits for Sinatra.

And not the best by a long shot, but I always loved Denny Doherty's voice. In a lot of ways, he was one of the prime voices of the 60's for me.

They were actually pretty good Lead by the Canadian Jim Morrison! They were one of the first bands I saw in a club. Almost blew the roof off.

The lyrics are fine...just the singing :coversears:

Yeah, I can see how he'd be an acquired taste for some

Interesting that you mention the lyrics, however. It's one of the biggest reasons I'm a fan. So direct, personal, and many times, political. This song was written years ago, but it really resonates today, in my opinion. At the beginning, I think about September 11th...and it just branches off from there into something very powerful.

It's also about the guitar for me, and the cadence and rhythm of his songs while he's playing it. The first Neil song I ever heard:

Great clips, lazarus

I've never seen the Helpless clip before. Neil does look somewhat artificially happy in that one.

The Joni clips are also amazing. I can really hear a Zeppelin connection. As I was listening, I was also thinking about Heart...Nancy Wilson sounds like she may have been influenced by her, as well.

One more Neil-related clip: Radiohead, covering After The Gold Rush.

One of my favourite Leonard Cohen songs.

"When filming the motion picture The Last Waltz, Young appeared on stage with one nostril clearly filled with cocaine. Bandleader Robbie Robertson later had to pay several thousand dollars for the cocaine to be Rotoscoped out of the film, lest rock audiences be "offended." Robertson called it "the most expensive cocaine I've ever bought." When asked about the incident many years later, Young replied, "I'm not proud of that.""

Link: http://www.canadiancontent.net/peopl...eil-Young.html (nothing exciting in the link. Jus crediting the source.)

"The cocaine booger hanging on to Neil Young’s nose hair is particularly impressive, as is the illegal smile, which couldn’t have been wiped of his face with a belt sander." (hollywood hangover)

It's got to be Neil Young.

may I commend you on your excellent taste

I've been a huge fan for years, and lucky for us down here in Aussie, it was like the Tea Party's home away from home, so I also got to see them live a number of times .. absolutely brilliant .. and yes When the band split, I was sooo disappointed, mainly because I knew I'd probably never see them again in concert

I recommend checking out Jeff Martin's shows if you ever get the chance ... seen him a number of times in the past year or so, and it's good to see him developing a solo career

Anyway, nice to meet a fellow fan!

I'm no expert on Canadian music, but Cowboy Junkies and Chris Isaak are pretty cool.
