Favourite show? hmmmm… Very Hard to say but 1982, Kingsman Field House, Edmonton Alberta… Girlschool, Iron Maiden, The Scorpions…. the Scorpions were in “Pods” at the beginning of the show…. just like Spinal Tap.

One thought on “Musician Profile: Kirk Douglas

  1. My favorite musician? Kirk Douglas, ever since we became friends in Sherwood Park in 1983. Although we are separated by the miles (I live in Australia, he lives in Vancouver), we still remain the best of friends. And I’m so proud of what he has done, and what he has achieved. Congrats Kirk, a great article for a great guy!
