HOW I GOT MY MIND BLOWN by NICK PAYNE
Part 1 – The first time a live band blew my mind must have been sometime in early 1970 when I went to my favorite club in Quebec City called “Cirque Electrique”. This is where I first saw this awesome band called “CANNONBALL”.
Maybe awesome isn’t the right word?
How about, “I HAVE NEVER HAD MY MIND BLOWN BY SO MUCH TALENT ON ONE STAGE” kind of awesome! I made a point of meeting these guys after the first set.
Seeing Cannonball was like seeing the birth of Rock Gods.
Part 2 – Now I had been living in Kelowna since the mid 70’s and was trying to keep my hand in the biz somehow doing whatever I could to stay in touch with the live scene. I had, after all, met nearly every Canadian band that was touring out and quite a lot of them became WORLD CLASS ROCK GODS! You’ve got all their records, April Wine, Heart, Loverboy, Streetheart, Bryan Adams, Prism just to name a few.
Then I heard the Headpins in Kelowna!
Actually, then I heard DARBY MILLS!
MIND BLOWN! AGAIN!!
I was pretty shaken up!
That’s it “GAME OVER!!” “GO HOME!!” Rock will never be the same! You’ve heard it all! Nothing left…Move on!! You can die now Nick!
SUCH POWER! SUCH SUSTAIN!!
I have asked myself more than once, “Man, how can so much power be bottled up in such a cute little babe?”
WELL SHE’S BACK!
