Rock My World Canada, Chapter 21: The Headstones

[Mike Carr has put together a massive volume on Canadian music history entitled Canadian Alternative & Indie Reference and Collector’s GuideIt’s an incredible discography of hundreds of bands. This is the latest excerpt from his book. – AC]

The Headstones are a punk-influenced alt-rock band formed in 1987 in Kingston, Ontario, and remained continuously active until 2003 before a hiatus and subsequent reunion in 2001.  The band consists of vocalist Hugh Dillion, guitarist Trent Carr, and bassist Tim White. They frequently sold out small- and mid-sized venues and were known for their high-energy live shows. (Dillion was especially fascinating to watch.) In 1996, The Headstones received Juno Award nominations for Best Group and Best Rock Album.
