Heroes in Rehab: the blog. What is it? To a certain extent, of course, that remains to be seen. For now, it is my latest attempt to entertain friends and family, to force myself to write a bit, and to just collect together in one place some things that I come across during the considerable amount of time I spend just surfing around from place to place.
“Heroes in Rehab” is the name of my band. We settled on the name in 1994 when a friend travelling in Hungary sent us a postcard that mentioned the “statues of all the rehabilitated heroes”. Heroes in Rehab created one tremendously successful recording – “Ouais” – that went triple teflon* in Canada in 1996. Since that time, I have been working on a historical novelization (and musical theatre version) of the life of the great Russian composer Havingevoofer Trauserkov. Also, I have been collecting mass.
I hope to write a little bit about my life and things that interest me in music, sports and Canadian politics.
