Max Webster was the starting point for 2 of Canada’s most brilliant songwriters, Kim Mitchell and Pye Dubois.  The band formed in 1973 and had a string of hits and gold albums until 1981.  The principals all went on to great solo careers.

Nothing to say, except they are from small town Alberta.  Major international stars, you either like them or you don’t.

Great song.  I always thought their early material was far superior.  Kind of like the jazzy sound they had before they went straight power chords.

Looking Out For Number One


4. Max Webster

“Night Flights”

The second entry.  Both these songs were from the same album.  There will be more.

The Band is likely the best band to come out of our country.  Great music.  This video is absolutely spectacular.
