Meet the biggest Canadian band you've never heard of: Johnny and the Apologies
Canadian Rock 'n Roll has always been a big deal in Canada, but occasionally a group has what it takes to make it big outside our borders. In this documentary we profile a group called Johnny and the Apologies, who in 1964 were as big as the Beatles but only in South America.
"We were just a couple of hard-working guys from Regina. To be the biggest band in South America was a real mind tickler," says Dave Tonner an original member.
We follow the guys as they reunite for an anniversary concert in Brazil. Hear their hits "Mr. Prime Minister" and "Aurora Borealis in Her Eyes" below:
