John Mann, Singer for Spirit of the West, Dies at 57


Recommended Posts

They were a staple on the Wedge back in the day, you know back when Much used to play Music?  Venice is sinking was the first song I heard by them, and that 'erection on a horse' lyric always made me laugh - and probably always made him laugh as well.

Found another thing I have in common with John - Born in Calgary, Alberta, Mann relocated to Vancouver, British Columbia, to study theatre at Studio 58. He left Studio 58 in 1983 and co-founded the band Spirit of the West.


Wow, I probably met him, as I was at Studio 58 in 1983 as well!
