Did you know Mick Fleetwood shaved his beard to be on Star Trek: The Next Generation?
I recently had the great opportunity to chat with Fleetwood Mac co-founder and drummer Mick Fleetwood in advance of the band's return to Vancouver at Rogers Arena on April 4. (They also played here in November.) During our phone chat, Fleetwood discussed the band's recent reunion with long absent singer and keyboardist Christine McVie, as…

RAWK.
Weirdo rock fans rejoice, Vancouver is now home to its own version of Austin's Psych Fest. Levitation Vancouver, which borrows its name from this year's edition of Psych Fest, will take place June 5-7 at Malkin Bowl and various venues in the Vancouver core. The lineup of the festival was announced Monday, and it includes…

Told you this guy was going places.
North Vancouver-bred rising star Tobias Jesso Jr., whom I'm a big fan of, was on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show last night (Feb. 26), singing How Could You Babe, from his debut album Goon (out March 17 via Arts & Crafts). It's been a whirlwind year for Jesso so far. Goon is getting a ton of…

Horns up.

The band will be in Vancouver, where they recorded the album, on Sept. 22 at BC Place. Other Canadian dates include Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Moncton, Toronto and Edmonton. Tickets for the Vancouver show go on sale Monday,…

Hey I've gone MasterChef crazy and will be blogging all of Season 2 of MasterChef Canada! Tell all your friends!
With a last-minute switch in their plans, the people at CTV showed they had obviously been feeling the pressure to get MasterChef Canada started early this season, especially since the post-Super Bowl slot was pretty much empty and everyone I know was ready to switch over to Global to watch The Blacklist (by everyone I know, I…

Tunes!
As we gear up to reveal our favourite albums of 2014 (we'll do that a little later this week), why don't we listen to our favourite songs of the year? Here are 30 tracks that totally ruled in 2014, from Aphex Twin to Future Islands and White Lung, and you can listen to them with this…

Every week I recap the latest chapter in MasterChef Canada Season 2, looking mainly at our B.C. contestants. After we lost Richmond's Debra Pangestu in last week's pressure test, it was time for the rest of the B.C. clan to step up to the plate (pun totally intended). In episode five, dubbed "Slice of Life,"…

A mish mash of clowning around!
It's probably fitting that the first team challenge has a circus theme with Cirque du Soleil being involved in the competition this week. Sabrina is obviously excited since her hometown of Montreal is represented, but while it's all fun and games in the beginning, it's about to get all scary clown funhouse soon. Having both…

Yup?
According to guitarist Ronnie Wood, yes, the Rolling Stones are coming to North America in 2015. "If we’re to believe Ronnie Wood — and really, why wouldn’t we believe him? — the Rolling Stones will be touring North America this summer. The guitarist shared the info with GMI Rock News (via WMGK) during a recent…

Watch out for this guy.
Late last year I had the opportunity to chat with Vancouver rising star Tobias Jesso Jr., an artist I dubbed The Vancouver Sun's top music name to watch in 2015. In that feature, I hinted at Jesso being on the verge of signing with a notable Canadian label ahead of the release of his much…

A recording artist from Vancouver, a concrete contractor from Surrey and a public relations officer from Richmond are among the 49 finalists wanting to trade their day job for a chance at winning top honours on the second season of MasterChef Canada, coming to CTV in February. I've been a fan of MasterChef since the…

It's the best thing they've ever done. So kudos to that.
The title of Nickelback’s latest studio album, No Fixed Address, is no coincidence. The Canadian rockers — Alberta-bred B.C. transfers who have grown to global, money-printing stardom — are making their move to pan-galactic pop with their eighth effort.
