Our Back Pages with Doug Chappell & Friends

By David Farrell

It was late September on one of those balmy post-summer days when Gary Muth and David Farrell decided to amble down to visit some of the old gang that had retired and moved to or near Niagara Falls. A sort of Big Chill trip down memory lane where we could wolf down plates of hot chicken wings, fries with gravy and cheeseburgers with all the fixings. The devil's food, plated out on a roadhouse patio serving cheap draft and dirty bloody marys. It was a bit of heaven on earth where the laughter was infectious and the stories, well... the kind shared with friends with zippered lips and 'in the know'.

It was the kind of day that 2020 ripped away from us, just as the year has ripped us of so much... and so many.

Left to right at this momentous 2017 summit: Gary Muth, George Semkiw, Duff Roman, Joanne Smale, Jan Haust, Kim Clarke Champniss, and Mr. King of the World-Doug Chappell, standing proudly with his vintage cherry-red Alfa Romeo convertible.

Neil Young's Love Earth Tour Will Take Him Throughout Canada

The Canadian icon is bringing his Love Earth Tour with Crazy Horse to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Burnaby. He's also added a second date at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, accompanying the release of his new album, FU##IN' UP.

Neil Young is showing some love to Canadian cities on his Love Earth tour. While his original tour announcement featured just one stop in his home country, in Toronto's Budweiser Stage, he's now announced dates in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., as well as a second show at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, in response to "incredible fan demand."

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
