Platinum Blonde is back, but don’t call it a reunion. In reality, it’s more like the band has simply taken a finger off of the pause button with the release of its new album Now & Never.
With four albums that have collectively gone Platinum seven times over and garnered multiple Juno Award nominations, along with an induction into the Music and Broadcast Industry Hall of Fame, it’s easy to wonder what else was there is for Platinum Blonde to accomplish? As it turns out, quite a lot.
“There’s been no resting on the laurels of the past successes,” says frontman Mark Holmes. “I appreciate every last thing I’ve got, but you have to embrace what’s coming towards you. The golden age is forever, it’s right now.”
The Vancouver rock band Chilliwack produced some of the most enduring Canadian songs of the 1970s and early 1980s, including “Lonesome Mary,” “Fly at Night,” and “My Girl (Gone Gone Gone).”
With their catchy, easygoing hooks and bright, melodic style — distinguished by the soaring falsetto and tasteful guitar playing of lead singer and principal songwriter Bill Henderson — the Vancouver rock band Chilliwack produced some of the most enduring Canadian songs of the 1970s and early 1980s, including “Lonesome Mary,” “Fly at Night,” and “My Girl (Gone Gone Gone).” In 18 years (1970–88), Chilliwack released11 albums, four of which were certified platinum in Canada, and 19 Canadian singles. The band moved in an increasingly commercial direction through varying styles — from psychedelic, progressive and country rock to adult contemporary and pop rock — and suffered multiple changes in labels and band members before achieving success in the United States.
