Ritchie Henman grew up in Chester Basin, Nova Scotia and became a pop music fan at an early age. Guitar lessons at age eleven were quickly followed by drums and piano. His first public performance at thirteen cemented a desire to play music that eventually led to a career as a professional recording and touring musician. With several hit records from his groups April Wine and Cruiser now enjoying more than fifty years of airplay, Ritchie has written a lively detailed chronicle of his adventures.Along the way, he had a biker gang put out a contract on him at twenty; had his image on every 7-Up can in the country at twenty-two; took one of the world’s foremost guitarists for a short fast drive in an Italian supercar that belonged to a notorious gangster; and turned down an opportunity to record and tour with an American superstar. He also toured with Stevie Wonder, the Jackson Five and other legendary performers. This is his true story.
