CanCon Friday - Loverboy
From the ashes of dreams rose success...Paul Dean, original guitarist with the mighty Streetheart, found himself unemployed due to the usual frictions over creative directions.
A seasoned hand on the Canadian rock scene, he set about finding players of like mind and professionalism to form an act that found itself at exactly the right place and the right time - the 1980's, and the dawn of MTV.
For a little flavor of the moment, let singer Mike Reno tell you the rest of the story of a band still going strong.
Fun fact: It's said that Bob Rock, esteemed producer and former member of the Payolas, requested the use of the late Scott Smith's number one bass while tracking his parts on the infamous St. Anger album by Metallica.
