They are still one of the biggest names ever in Atlantic Canadian rock. In the 1980s Haywire went platinum with their first full-length album...the classic Bad Boys. And the title track was a Top 40 hit. They followed up with Don't Just Stand There...also platinum...featuring "Dance Desire" ...which was their highest charting hit ever.
Now the boys from Haywire are celebrating a big weekend at the East Coast Music awards. They are the recipients of the Lifetime Achievement award and the Gala will feature a special tribute to their music.
The band members are Dave Rashed, Paul MacAusland, Marvin Birt, Scott Roberts and Ronnie Switzer.
Matt caught up with them as they prepared for the big weekend.
