How was the show in Mississauga Friday night? I was really itching to drive up there, but my son had an accident on his bike and required medical attention. He was not a comfortable lad and I wanted to saty with him.


When I logged on to your site and realized who you were I stopped to think about the songs you wrote or played on on those early April Wine albums. For that alone, you deserve our respect and admiration.


Drop Your Guns is one of my all time favorites man. The bass riff in the middle section is one that I've always found myself noodling with when I pick up a bass.


I WILL make it to one of your shows.


Hope it went well.

David Henman, who regularly posts here was one of the founding members of April Wine. He played guitar on the first three albums and wrote a number of great songs including Drop Your Guns.


I wouldn't post this if it wasn't easily available via his site as he seems to keep a relatively low profile.


Credit where credit's due.

This is where all the youngins on the forum go, Who is April Wine?

They are definately one of my all time favorite canadian groups.

Canadians can have their passports taken away for not being familiar with April Wine.

Three just excellent bands! I remember April Wine playing at our high school dances, that's going way back. Deep Purple was my favorite band growing up, saw them with the original lineup at the Gardens, talk about loud!

And what can you say about Mountain... Leslie West, Nantucket Sleighride, one of my favorite bands to this day.

I've never heard of mountain before the concert, but they put on a really loud, amazing show.

IMO, let's leave the subject alone. Give the man some peace!

If he wanted to discuss it he would have by now. .02

I suspect that's true, and if I've caused any unwanted attention, I apologize, but as I said this information is readily available via David's site which can be accessed through this site.


If he really wanted it to be secret he would have probably used a pseudonym here.

No I understand man. My comment wasn't to anyone in particular it was just an observation.:food-smiley-004:

Right, I knew that, but I'd feel bad if I caused unwanted attention just the same. David has been very low key, just one of the guys and I'd hate to spoil that, but hey the guy played on some tunes that I grew up loving and I wanted to offer praise.

I'll let it die now.

...too cool!

myles, who really IS april wine, grew up in waverly. his first band was "woody's termites" and included my cousin jim henman, the original bassist in april wine.

oddly enough, i formed a partnership with another singer who grew up in waverly, glenn reid:

we no longer perform together, but still co-write.

How come you left the band Dave??
CT.:confused-smiley-010
...sorry, guys, i just saw this thread. i'm spending way too much time at my day job actually working today (grin)!

we started the band on dec 1, 1969. we were very, very naive and thought we would be as famous as the beatles within six months and then go straight to our solo careers!

the reality is that myles was a very driven artist, and being in a "democratic" band probably drove him crazy. after the third album, we split. myles wanted to go forward with jim clench, the bassist. i was asked to join, but i didn't want to be a "hired hand". more to the point, my brother, who didn't get along with myles, was not asked to join. we had an unwritten code of loyalty between us. i subsequently, and happily, signed over the name, april wine, which was my own creation.

i'm a huge fan, still, and looking forward to the new cd, due in mid-july.

thanks for the opportunity to blow my own horn!!!
