It's April (Wine)!

To celebrate this fourth month of the year, over the course of the next 30 days I will occasionally post videos by Canadian hard rock band April Wine (have you ever noticed how many hard rock bands from the late '70s-early '80s were Canadian?).

I became familiar with these guys while living in Kalamazoo from 2006-2010, through a radio station out there, 92.5 WZUU. The format of that station is hard rock/heavy metal, with a particular emphasis on AOR classics from the late '70s through the late '80s, along with a smattering of '90s grunge and newer heavy music. I really miss it since I moved to Lansing, as it had more of a variety of songs and bands than your typical "classic rock" station. To me, it seemed like the next generational step of classic rock.

An underrated band, they had some fun and catchy songs. Here's one...

  1. I've seen these guys in the dollar bins before, maybe I'll have to check one out sometime. That song was pretty rockin'.
