Canadian rock fans were sad indeed to see the demise of the Headstones (one of Canada's more successful rock bands) in 2003, but it was for good reason. The band's lead singer, Hugh Dillon, had battled demons and hardcore drug/alcohol addiction for years and, despite numerous attempts at rehab, he just couldn't stay clean when they were on the road. Realizing his life was on the line, Dillon pulled the plug and made one final attempt at beating addiction. This time it took. He went on to pursue a successful acting career and starred in two hit Canadian TV series, Flashpoint and Durham County.
In 2011, the Headstones put the hurt behind them and started making music again. Funded entirely by fans, Love Fury is a labour of love and a testament to how talented each member of this band is. This CD is a flurry of track after track no BS rock & roll, including a cover of ABBA's SOS, done Headstones' style. Twenty years after they first hit the music scene, the Headstones are older, wiser, and tighter than ever before, but still raw and full of attitude. My favourite song is probably "longwaytoneverland", but to be honest, Love Fury is start to finish full of favourites!
