I have so much in common with Steve Jones. We both grew up in small towns in Northern Ontario, used music to cope through our small town isolation, went on to write music-based books, and now we both speak on what can be learned from music and applied to various aspects of work and life. And this week, we sit down and shed light on our intriguing similarities.
We chat about Sudbury, The Violent Femmes, Bob Marley's Canadian connection, the story behind that little laugh that can be heard if you listen closely at the beginning of The Police's "Roxanne", and how the music we both chose offered Steve and I the community we desperately needed as kids. A truly enjoyable conversation for me.
