April Wine - The Hits

It's been a long time since I posted a Canadian band. These guys are one of my favorite Canadian radio rock bands. A staple for any Canadian kid listening to Classic Rock.

But the one thing that really pisses me off. Nickelback was inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame before April Wine. To this day, April Wine is still waiting for their salute and acceptance on to the walk. Shameful I say. Nickelback crist sake! PA-LEASE! - wino


April Wine is a Canadian rock band formed in 1969. According to the band, they chose the name 'April Wine' simply because members thought the two words sounded good together.[1] The band went on to release more than twenty albums and forge a live performance reputation that still sees them drawing devoted crowds across Canada and around the world thirty-nine years after taking their first steps into the hard rock spotlight.

April Wine began in late 1969 in Waverley, Nova Scotia (a suburb of Halifax). The original members were brothers David Henman on guitar and Ritchie Henman on drums. Their cousin Jim Henman joined in on bass, and Myles Goodwyn completed the sound on lead vocals and guitar. In early 1970 the band relocated to Montreal. Shortly after arriving in their new home the band was signed by Aquarius Records. They recorded and released their debut self-titled album April Wine in 1971. The album spawned their first single, "Fast Train", which received fairly steady airplay on radio stations across Canada and established Myles Goodwyn as the band's main songwriter. The single's success gave the band's label confidence and work began on a second album, but not before a change in the line-up (the first of many over the course of the band's career). Jim Henman left the band in the fall of 1971, and was replaced by Jim Clench.
