As a Canadian, I was brought up on Rush, and lived through a memorable endless sunny high school summer when April Wine’s “Sign of the Gypsy Queen” was on the radio every hour. Rock, for a bit, had been allowed to break out of the prescribed sub-3 minute straightjacket blues framework. Songs could develop, rather than be compressed. Lyrics didn’t have to be lightweight and banal. Life was good, though maybe that was just the high school summer talking.
