John Mann (1962-2019)
Hard Rock Miners were fortunate to share the stage with Spirit of the West on a couple of occasions.
The time I remember best was a four-band bill that included the Rheostatics and headliners Barenaked Ladies, who were celebrating the release of their major label debut, Gordon, at the Pacific Coliseum in the summer of 1992.
If it can be said that multi-band bills create instant cities, John, more than any other musician that night, was our mayor.
Rest in peace, Mayor John.
