When my next guest walked on stage the crowd at The Great Hall in Toronto popped. A giant of a man with long, dark, wavy hair and wearing a dark, long coat came on stage and read from his book. This was March 29, 2018.
I had no clue who this person was. Why did he read from a book?
My next guest was raised in Hamilton, ON. He is an award-winning musician, singer, songwriter, an author, painter and visual artist.
The liner notes in his book, “Beautiful Scars”, reads, “Along the way he became a father and a grandfather, battled demons and addiction, and he waited, hoping for the truth to emerge. and when it did, it would sweep across the St. Lawrence River to the Mohawk reserve of Kahnawake in Quebec , on to the heights of the Manhattan skyline.” I now understood why he read from his book.
Please Welcome to the show, Tom Wilson.
