Romancing Canada's Indigenous People

There are a lot of great bands out there today who write some great ballads.  So if you’re looking for some inspiration during writing time, or are a reader who enjoys hard rock, here are some recommendations from my own personal playlist.


I got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell!

1.  Pop Evil – Torn to Pieces

2.  Madam Adam – The Story of Us (Unfortunately, I can’t find a video for this at YouTube.  But this song is amazing and worth buying.)

3.  Goo Goo Dolls – Notbroken

4.  Saliva – Rest in Pieces  (Gotta love Josey Scott.  He is one of my favourite singers.)

5.  The Cult – Painted on My Heart

8.  Theory of a Deadman – Angel

9.  Buckcherry – Bliss

10.  Chickenfoot – Learning to Fall

13.  Three Days Grace – Wake Up

14.  Splender – I Think God Can Explain

15.  Chris Cornell – The Promise
