Back when I was a rookie PD at CKOM in Saskatoon I remember the day Joni Mitchell who hailed from Saskatoon came by the studios to give us her new album. She was accompanied by some long hair and because my guys Gary Russell Keith Elshaw Woody Cooper Ken Singer and Dylan Thomas were huge fans of her’s she happily agreed to tape an interview with us.
While taking a short break Joni introduced us to her long haired friend whom we were shocked to learn was Graham Nash of the Hollies. Graham, it turned out had just stopped in Saskatoon to visit with Joni for a couple of days before heading onto to LA where he was recording an album with a new group they’d just formed called Crosby Stills and Nash.

    • I love him but like I say he’ll be in the HOF quicker than he will be in another Superbowl. Still one of my all time favorites but he has lazy team mates.

  1. So many great guitar players in the world, including Clapton. How about Prince on “While My Guitar…”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SFNW5F8K9YBut
    We may not even know the names of the greatest guitar players; studio musicians,etc. There’s at least two impressive guitarists on stage with Eric (check out the guy wearing the old fashioned golf cap) on this tribute to George Harrison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LG5EdoxBVt0
    You have to click in about 47 minutes to skip all the Sitar stuff. “Wah Wah” is a treat about 2:06 in. George Harrison’s son is the spittin’ image. Mesmerizing!
