Here for A Good Time
On the Road With Trooper, Canada's Legendary Rock BandBook - 2006
"We're Here for a Good Time" -- "Raise a Little Hell" -- "The Boys in the Bright White Sportscar" -- all Canadian anthems -- all recorded by Trooper. The Globe and Mail calls them "honest-to-God Canadian legends". The Toronto Sun lauds the ongoing strength of their "Boomer/Gen X cachet". They have sold millions of albums, have travelled tens of thousands of miles, and, for thirty years, have borne first-hand witness to an amazing era in popular music: "sex, drugs, and rock & roll" and the long hard road where careers are made and broken. Ra McGuire, Trooper's charismatic leader, singer, and songwriter, still travels that road, performing 100 shows a year from Tofino to Torbay and everywhere in between. Famous for his quick wit and sometimes too-candid stage banter, McGuire has always had a knack for keeping audiences on the edge of their seats. In this book, he reveals the peaks and valleys of his life on the road, and the joys and challenges of being a 50-something rock star at large in the country he knows like the back of his hand.
