In Grant’s tell-all recollection, you’ll discover the behind-the-scenes mishaps and adventures experienced by the band during their multi-country tour in the midst of the '90s grunge era.

With Canada’s sesquicentennial occurring this year, the release of The Year Canadians Lost Their Minds and Found Their Country: The Centennial of 1967 couldn’t have come at a better time. This historical reflection on Canada’s centennial by Tom Hawthorn recounts the quirky celebration that was at first met with indifference but soon turned into a blockbuster party that ran from coast to coast, which included everything from epic canoe trips to dog sled treks, bathtub races and the construction of a UFO landing pad.
