At one time, The Headstones were the scariest bands in Canadian music. They scared audiences, they scared record companies–hell, they scared themselves.
Many words were used to described them. Intense. Self-destructive. Dangerous. But the word the group like the most was “ferocious.” That’s an understatement.
It’s not only amazing that the group is still with us but that everyone is still alive.
I managed to corral Hugh, Trent, and Tim from the band and had them tell the story of The Headstones as they saw it.
Strap in. This is going to get intense.
