406. April Wine

Top 5 Albums from Last.FM

  • The Hits

  • The Nature of the Beast

  • Greatest Hits

  • All the Rockers

  • Harder...Faster

With a long and storied history in Canada (peppered with a few minor hits in the United States), April Wine left behind a legacy of Hard Rock tunes and Power Ballads. Multi dimensional and great live performers, they are also very underrated and surprisingly have yet to reach the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Without that accolade, there is little reason that they would get enshrined in Cleveland….not that this was going to happen anyway.

Just one April Wine song title, "If You See Kay," is wittier than all the Sammy Hagar-era Van Halen album titles put together.

April Wine did get into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2010.

I saw this band during ther peak in the 80's, I believe it was 1984, Selland Arena, Fresno, Ca. They backed up Forigner. They are great (Forigner) but I can not tell a lie, A W BLEW them off the stage!
