Lead singer  Jon (The Needle) Traut couldn’t be with RBC/DC when the band visited The Free Press — but here is a myspace.com photograph which says it’s Jon Traut, Is it? Is this London’s greatest acupuncturist-rock star (though Dr. John Clement of the NSB also has his acupuncture qualifications) . . . anyway, JT, as someone must call you, JBNBlog hopes this is you.

Here is good news from the Battle of the Bay Street Bands XIII at the Ceeps on March 1 . . .  big big success as a fundraiser for Wellspring London.

Adam Bain of RBC/DC provides the details & graciously passes along word on the winner of the coveted Paul Stanley Cup.

Here’s a link to four or RBC/DC’s five heroes rawkin at The LFP & sharing a few jests about the AC/DC tribute thing.

Here’s Angus, er, Adam . . .

 

. . .  we raised over $69,000 !

With almost 500 in attendance over the course of the evening the battle was a huge success.   In a coin toss between RBC/DC and A Crude Interest from BMO … BMO won the toss.   The band and I will be back to do battle again next year.
The Highway to Hellp Tour continues..
