An unusual but amusing one for you! (I recorded everything. I have a tape here labelled the “Star Trek Awards”, I can’t wait to see what that is.)
This tape comes from the 1990 Toronto Music Awards. Mike Levine and Gil Moore of Triumph are called to present Best Toronto Male Vocalist. Triumph were without a singer at the time, imagine if Rik Emmett were nominated! But he’s not. Check out the seven (!) nominees and who Kim had to beat. “Sebastian Back” was a formidable singer and Kim said as much.
Finally, Peter Fredette is hilarious. Listen to him singing opera style as he approaches the podium. Did you know he was Kim’s vocal coach as well as bassist?
