One of the few worthwhile legacies of the 1986 Vancouver Expo was the Expo Theatre, where I saw a few good shows around that time, including Kim Mitchell, Joe Jackson, and Alvin Lee from Ten Years After.
One summer day in ’87 I visited the outdoor venue to see Tom Cochrane, who I’ve always thought was the great Canadian rock singer-songwriter, miles ahead of the overrated Bryan Adams.
This was right between his Tom Cochrane & Red Rider and Victory Day albums, which were both great.
And no, I wasn’t there to see the coheadliner.
