Happy Canada Day:: Courtesy of the Band



It's Canada Day. Basically, for all of you not in the know, July 1st is our Nation's birthday (which would explain that old Chixdiggit record to any punker that still had questions). It's a day of bbq and beer here for most and for us it's no different thanks to herohill founder Shane and his wife.

It also means radio stations all over the country will be filling the playlists with Neil Young, The Hip and, of course, THE BAND. I won't go on and on, but The Weight is one of my Top 5 favorites of all-time, and if you don't smile when you hear it we probably couldn't be friends. So, some classic video and a couple of covers thanks to Aretha Franklin and The Staple Singers. Happy Canada Day, eh!
