Stephen Harper rocks out at Conservative Christmas party
PM's rendition of Guns N' Roses tune 'Sweet Child O' Mine' rounds out night
Stephen Harper channelled Axl Rose for his musical encore at the annual Conservative Christmas party on Tuesday night.
Harper was on keyboards and lead vocals with his new band the Van Cats (as in 24 in French, 24 Sussex), and played the Guns N' Roses tune "Sweet Child O' Mine" to round out the night.
Members of Parliament, party members from the region, and political staffers took phone photos and danced in front of the stage where Harper played several numbers.
Harper also sang John Denver's "Country Roads," changing some of the lyrics to refer to Alberta instead of West Virginia.
The prime minister has played piano or keyboards for the cameras several times before, including at the National Arts Centre Gala in 2009.
