Blue Rodeo's Greg Keelor and Jim Cuddy were in the red chairs to talk about their new album In Our Nature and the band's career.
After nearly three decades together, Cuddy and Keelor have weathered all the storms that bands can go through — and now, well, it's everyone else they don't really want to deal with.
"There's something about your mid-career years where I don't know if you're just tired of touring or climbing the ladder or you're just sort of resentful of each other and other people in the band, there's a lot more friction," said Cuddy. "It's hard to get older. But that stuff has been burnt out of us. We have enjoyed each others' company.
"It's a strange life and it's nice to have somebody to share it with. And somebody that's close that shares the same sense of humour that you do. 'Cause often you'll be around 'normal people' and we're a bit too harsh for normal people. And I can see them looking at me and I'm thinking, 'Oh god, I gotta chill... I gotta get around Greg again so I can be myself.'"
