The nationally bestselling memoir of a Canadian rock ’n’ roll legend
April Wine ruled the charts both in Canada and internationally in the ’70s and ’80s, and the band has influenced generations of musicians in all genres. Country superstar Garth Brooks says, “April Wine was my Entertainment 101 for my career.” Now in its fourth decade, April Wine continues to charge ahead as one of Canada’s very best rock acts.
Singer, guitarist, writer, producer and bandleader Myles Goodwyn is the only remaining original member of April Wine, and has been with the group since its inception in 1969. Through the ups and downs and changing faces of the band, the one constant has been Myles Goodwyn.
Goodwyn grew up poor and is the classic “small-town kid makes good” success story. In Just Between You and Me, he shares the story of his upbringing, first at home in rural New Brunswick and then in the music business as the lead singer of April Wine, one of Canada’s most popular bands ever. Success comes at a price, though, and Goodwyn doesn’t shy away from the darker stories of fame and its accompanying excess, particularly during such a wild period in rock ’n’ roll history. But as far as that history goes, Myles Goodwyn is already a living legend (especially in the annals of Canadian rock) and is known as one of the all-time greats.
