Max Webster

S

tarted by guitarist Kim Mitchell who had worked with various bands over the years, including Alice Cooper and MC5, the Max Webster group was backed by Dave Myles (bass), Terry Watkinson (keyboards) and Gerry McCracken (drums) to release Hangover (1976), High Class In Borrowed Shoes (1977), Mutiny Up My Sleeve (1978), A Million Vacations (1979), Live Magnetic Air (1979) and Universal Juveniles (1980). Their 1979 album and single Paradise Skies (featuring guest appearances by members of fellow Canadian act Rush) was an attempt to crack the British market but as the subsequent tour proved that market was a hard nut to crack when they were forced to cancel much of the tour due to lack of interest. The final album managed to impress some, but it wasn't enough and the act split in 1982; Mitchell continued on with a solo career.
