first time I saw Doug...... around Summer/Fall 1990, at a little below-ground coffehouse on Poulette in Hamilton, called The Warehouse. I was about 16. He had a band then and they played. I honestly thought "oh my god, Neil Young is here!!!" until I verbalised this and was taken to task. Incidentally, The Warehouse was the first place I ever performed in public and where I had the opportunity to briefly meet the late Leslie Mahaffy.

Doug's been a central figure to the Hamilton music scene for ages. Great singer, player, songwriter. Damn, I remember him opening for High Times at the Tivoli Theatre way back when. What a scene!

As far as the video goes, interesting for me because I can immediately recognize where the live footage was filmed: The Winking Judge. It hasn't changed much. And I recognize people in the audience, not as friends but as people you just remember being around the same scenes I was.

rock on Dougie. put a damn album out already.
