'Tears Are Not Enough' Northern Lights Charity Single – 1985
"This is the world's weirdest band. Bryan Adams called me about this. All around the world, all these musicians were doing these things. Bryan wrote the song and he basically got everyone together. I had never met Neil Young before. He was totally the coolest guy of the whole day. Joni Mitchell was there. I was thrilled to be in the same room as her. I was always a big fan. Burton [Cummings, singer of the Guess Who] was a good guy. They were all kind of hanging out for the day, recording this song. It was a very unusual experience for me.
"It's a crazy, crazy little tune. You can see the time period in everyone's haircuts. . . Véronique Béliveau, the French singer, was awesome. . . This was bad, but it wasn't my worst hairdo. My worst one was the coonskin hat period. That's when I had my hair in a ponytail and this big poufy thing on the top. That was late 1980s/ early 1990s.
"I haven't seen this video in years. Being with some of those guys was surreal. And Anne Murray, she's an awesome person, too. Most of these people are long since faded from any public memory. I don't even recognize some of these dudes. That was produced by David Foster. He was a real schmaltzy producer."
