Dr. Nick & The Rollercoasters

June 16 /3:30 pm 6:30 pm

I first started playin’ harmonica in my early teenage years, around 1969. Nothing serious, just jamming in the washroom back at Northern Secondary in Toronto. I remember how kool it sounded with all the echo bouncing off the tiles. Most of my friends were into Hendrix and the Beatles back in those days, and so was I. But then a fellow student told me on the bus going home one day to check out this kat called Little Walter, who had died a few years earlier. So into Sam the Record Man I went and out I left with a copy of ‘Boss Blues Harmonica’ under my arm. That was a turning point in my life. What I heard on that two album set shook me up in a really good way, and I can still feel some trembling going on within me every time I give it a spin. That’s what the power of the Blues is all about, I suppose. People don’t choose the Blues, the Blues chooses them. Guess I’m just another happy prisoner of the Blues!
