From Rik:

“There’s a benefit on June 9 at the Port House in Port Credit Ontario, for a soundman who’s a guy I grew up with, Bernie Sandor.  I’m going to get up and sing “My Old School” with the tribute band “Pretzel Logic” (which RES 9 drummer Paul DeLong also plays in:  and my pal Mike Shotton is lead singer).   This will be a great night of music — many bands, including Oakland Stroke (a fantastic Tower of Power cover band) and Hotel California, an Eagles cover band. “

Time to get into the Christmas spirit, friends. And who better to help us do that than Triumph guitar wiz and Christmas music guru Rik Emmett?

Rik has once again graciously invited me into his home, this time to record two special NSTS episodes featuring his favourite Christmas songs (Rik insisted it be two episodes – there was simply too much ground to cover). In addition to sharing an immense amount of fascinating musical knowledge and enthusiasm, Rik also takes down one of his electric guitars from the wall to play some of the Xmas songs that make his skin vibrate. If you have ANY interest in music whatsoever, you cannot miss this. For me, it just doesn’t get any better. What a way to close out a fantastic year, folks. Enjoy!
