HISTORY

1976

1976 - 1977

1976 – April Wine records a new album entitled “The Whole World’s Goin’ Crazy” with a new bass player, Steve Lang. An indication of the band’s growing popularity, the new album ships Double Platinum. Aquarius also signs a band from Windsor, Ontario called Teaze.

1977 – What was intended as a Myles Goodwyn solo album called “Goody Two Shoes” is converted to an April Wine album at the last minute and is released as “Forever, For Now”. It generates the band’s first #1 hit single, “You Won’t Dance with Me”. The band also records another live album when they open for The Rolling Stones at a small Toronto club called The El Mocambo. In 1977, Brian Greenway joins April Wine, establishing the 3-guitar attack that soon becomes the band’s trademark.
