"I Like to Rock" by April Wine

Song#:  0039
Date:  02/09/1980
Debut:  90
Peak:  86
Weeks:  3
Genre:  Rock, Hard Rock, Arena Rock

Pop Bits:  April Wine were stars in their home country of Canada years before their US breakthrough. Although a popular touring band here, they only had minor chart success; while in Canada they amassed 32 chart songs with 6 of them Top 10 hits.

ReduxReview:  Redneck bar music. Bleh. I think this would be Canada's equivalent to our Southern rock. What would that be? Ontario rock? Hmm. I'll give them a couple points for including Beatles and Stones licks at the end, which I guess are there to prove they like to rock.

ReduxRating:  3/10

Trivia:  Like many bands with a long career, April Wine seemed to be a revolving door of musicians. From their inception until present, they have had only one constant original member - lead vocalist/guitarist Myles Goodwyn.
