Welcome to the House of Crouse. It was so busy around here for the holidays we forgot to post the Best of 2016 edition! Here it is, words of wisdom from Spike Lee, Jonah Hill, photographer George Zimbel and Cheap Trick! Crazy big show to celebrate a crazy year. C’mon in, take a load off and sit a spell.
Welcome to the House of Crouse. Do you know where you were on July 8, 1977? I do. I was fourteen years old at the Halifax Forum gearing up to see KISS’s Love Gun tour with opening act Cheap Trick. It was my first big rock show and I remember it as if it was yesterday and not almost 40 years ago. A lot has changed since then… I don’t have braces anymore for instance… but one thing hasn’t. With 20 Million Albums sold, 40 gold & platinum Certifications for 16 studio albums, Cheap Trick is still rocking as hard as they did when they made my fourteen year old braces rattle. Recently inducted into the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame and with a new album called Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello available now, founding members Rick Nielsen (lead guitar) and Tom Petersson (bass guitar) join me at the House of Crouse.
