Max Webster! There's a name I haven't heard since Gerald Ford was President.

I think they played on every 70s arena tour they could latch onto. I know they were fourth on the bill when I saw Rush, but I have the feeling I was in the room with them for half a dozen other shows in those days.

Yeah. I checked my list, but it doesn't have opening bands listed for a lot of the shows. But I'd imagine I saw them at least three times.

No "kind of" seeing someone in those days. I watched every band on the show whether I liked them or not (with a few exceptions). I was just a teenage sponge looking for whatever I could soak up.

Their music wasn't on the radio in the Twin Cities (that I remember), but there were a lot of bands that toured like hell in those days and never got onto the radio.
