Myles Goodwyn uncorks the April Wine saga in a new memoir
Anyone with a radio is probably familiar with April Wine. Hits like You Could've Been a Lady, I Like to Rock and Say Hello are just three classics from the Montreal-based band's large catalogue. Since forming in 1969, they've sold millions of records and sold-out concerts.
But it all came at a price.
Myles Goodwyn's new in-depth memoir, Just Between You and Me, details the wake of broken relationships, depression and drinking habits that success left behind in his life.
"I don't want people to think I was unhappy. It was difficult, you cope with it," the guitarist and songwriter of the veteran Canadian hard rock group says to guest host Candy Palmater
Who the book is for
"I wrote the book primarily for my children because they grew up without their dad," he says adding that due to his demanding schedule of songwriting, recording and touring he missed a lot of "normal times" with them.
He also felt he owed the fans an explanation. Goodwyn admits to keeping quiet about the band's lineup changes over the years — "I never talked about it." With this memoir, he hopes to set the record straight.
