  • Nick Lewis | Radiohead interview
    are going to go on for And we don t want to have any regrets of not enjoying these times The members in the band are now in their mid 30s and Yorke is the father of a two year old It s funny because I was talking to Stanley Donwood who does the album artwork with Thom Greenwood says And he was saying before having kids you d just be angry at the world and shake your fist Once you have kids then obviously that s not a valid response anymore because you re denying them a future by saying there is no future I think there s a different attitude on this record because we are getting older and having children Some of the darker concerns are getting even stronger I think it s an even heavier record in some ways because there s more relaxation Thom s voice on it is just amazing because he s singing clear and loud I think it s less effort for more passion and more scary but it s from the soul and that s what matters There s a humour there to it There s a dark sarcastic humour running through it There s a lot of colours on this record not just the front of the album cover The phrase Hail To The Thief was a popular antiwar slogan during the recent U S Iraq conflict but its title has to do with more than just the band s politics A stolen unmastered version of the album was leaked on the Internet 10 weeks before its June 10 release A mastered CD quality version showed up two weeks before release We wanted a bright brash bold title for the record because that s the sort of album we believe we ve made Greenwood says And we wanted it to cover things that were being taken away from people whether it s personal space environments public spaces forums that people share or files stolen from the Internet I mean there are so many different things that it points to beyond just a single issue of whether or not George Bush stole the election in America And the response that we ve had from writers and from people who ve taken it on board and reflected it has been very gratifying The album leak has been the band s only source of frustration of late but even so the aggrivation had more to do with people listening to an unfinished product It s music it s not gold bullion or uranium Greenwood says You know it s meant to be shared and spread about When he s told this journalist also has a pirated version of the disc but that it hasn t left his CD player he responds with a quip Why is your tray stuck Is it jammed in the player Radiohead s six album contract with EMI is now complete and Yorke told British publication the New Music

  • Nick Lewis | Bryan Adams: Canada’s bestselling non-Canadian
    his right eye And that s pretty much what we know about him today Because he s an infrequent interviewee we weren t given access to him and shies away from industry events And the odd time he does indulge a publication he s closely guarded about his privacy and shoots down personal questions Most of his interviews tend to be by e mail and when asked why by the National Post in 2000 he replied tongue in cheek I get to practise my typing The main philosophy I have is I don t believe the press can help you at all he explained in greater detail to Vox Magazine in 1998 My manager and I have huge arguments about this because I don t think being on the cover of a magazine will make any expletive difference to my life or my music If I have something to say about a new record that I m really proud of then I m happy to do it But press just for press s sake I m not interested Fair enough After all most housewives don t read the rock press and they have proved pretty loyal and lucrative so far Adams fan base grew by many a housewife after his 1991 hit Everything I Do I Do It For You from the Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves soundtrack It was a chart topper in 21 countries and in the U S was briefly the best selling single of all time soon beaten by another movie song Whitney Houston s I Will Always Love You It was around this time that he turned from writing mainstream blue collar pop rock tunes at the beginning he was called a poor man s Springsteen into softer mushier fare Some of his biggest successes in the 90s came from ballads such as Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman and the acoustic I m Ready He indulged his passion for photography in 1998 by publishing a book of photographs in a fundraising effort for the Canadian Breast Cancer foundation called Made In Canada He shot pop stars such as Shania Twain and Celine Dion political figures such as Kim Campbell and Margaret Trudeau and was invited by the Queen to shoot her informally at her Golden Jubilee last year That shot will be a 49 cent stamp in Canada in December when 10 million will be issued for Canada Post s busiest period Though he looks and sounds a bit different in 2003 there is very much a part of Adams that will be 18 till he dies He has been attending London concerts by happening rock acts such as Jet Kings Of Leon White Stripes and Mercury Rev and he s a big fan of Eminem Mary J Blige and 50 Cent But he says in select interviews that his new CD slated for release next year sticks to what he s done musically of late rather than borrowing from his newfound influences

  • Nick Lewis | Cheers to our Golden Games
    I feel almost too normal for all of it I m somebody s sister somebody s neighbour It s all been amazing and I m glad to be able to share it with Kaillie Women s Ice Hockey Team Canada February 25 2010 Captain Hayley Wickenheiser Canada wins third straight Olympic hockey gold All but one Women s Olympic ice hockey final had featured Canada and the U S since the event s inclusion in 1998 and the expectation was the rivals would meet again in Vancouver Both teams heavily outscored their opponents in the preliminary round Canada by a margin of 41 2 and the U S by 31 1 But the real competition would begin in the medal round Marie Philip Poulin 18 scored both goals in a 2 0 win over the U S and Canada secured its third consecutive Olympic gold After fans left the building Canadian players celebrated on ice with cigars champagne and beer Though the IOC was in a huff Sports Illustrated opined When you win a hockey gold medal for Canada on home soil I think you re pretty much given carte blanche Q What did it mean to you to have Canada behind you Agosta I am so proud to be Canadian We have the best fans in the world and it was not just the fans in the arena cheering for us it was the millions of people watching us on TV and supporting us It is always an honour to represent your country and to be able to do it in front of your home crowd was unbelievable A dream come true 500 Metres Short Track February 26 2010 Charles Hamelin Sainte Julie Quebec Born April 14 1984 Charles crowned king of the short track Many Canadians felt the lion s share of gold medals would be won by the host country s thrilling speed skating team But up until Charles Hamelin raced in the men s 500 metres short track final Canadian speed skaters had managed only two silver medals Hamelin had come up short of the podium in the 1000 metre and 1500 metre races despite being a world champion in the former and a medal contender in the latter Criticized in the media he pleaded with the Canadians to be patient Hamelin was leading the final race until being overtaken by South Korea s Sung Si Bak But in a wild finish Si Bak slipped in the final stretch As Hamelin took over he almost lost his balance It was a photo finish as the skaters crossed the line and as judges conferred it seemed like an eternity until Hamelin prevailed Curling February 27 2010 Kevin Martin skip John Morris Marc Kennedy Ben Hebert and Adam Enright Edmonton 8 years later Martin gets his gold An inch That was the difference between gold and silver for Edmonton s Kevin Martin in the 2002 Winter Olympics when he lost on his final rock to Norway s Pal Trusen And it would take the skip eight years before he could find redemption One of curling s most decorated athletes Martin s team steamrolled the competition with a perfect 10 0 record en route to the final Once again Norway awaited this time skipped by Thomas Ulsrud Canada had squeaked past the men in checked pants 7 6 in their opening game But in the final Martin took a 6 3 lead into the 10th end and as Norway ran out of rocks the crowd began singing O Canada Kevin Martin finally had his Olympic gold 5000 metre relay short track February 26 2010 Guillaume Bastille Charles Hamelin Francois Hamelin Olivier Jean and Francois Louis Tremblay Meet the Cobra Thirty minutes after wining gold and bronze in the 500 metres Charles Hamelin and his teammate Francois Louis Tremblay were back at it as part of the five man 5000 metre relay team And they skated with a strategy Brothers Charles and Francois Hamelin Guillaume Bastille Olivier Jean and Tremblay devised a plan called Operation Cobra that would have Tremblay rest for 70 seconds before skating the final two laps China took an early lead but with a home audience roaring Charles Hamelin put the Canadians in front with with 13 laps to go A rested Tremblay blazed through his last two laps and the Canadians claimed gold over South Korea by 0 222 seconds Parallel Giant Slalom Snowboarding February 27 2010 Jasey Jay Anderson Val Morin Quebec Born April 13 1975 Old man Anderson caps amazing career Canada s most decorated snowboarder had won four gold medals at the FIS Snowboard World Cup been on 38 podiums and competed in every Winter Olympics since the 1998 Nagano Games All that eluded Jasey Jay Anderson a blueberry farmer from Val Morin Que was an Olympic medal By 2009 Anderson raced only giant slalom Making it to a wet and foggy final race the 35 year old Anderson overcame a huge 0 76 second deficit to beat the top ranked snowboarder in the world Austrian Benjamin Karl by 0 35 of a second Anderson retired after his race and returned home to his blueberry farm with his wife and two children Team Pursuit Speed Skating February 27 2010 Mathieu Giroux Lucas Makowsky and Denny Morrison Canada sets Olympic record Canadian male speed skaters had yet to find the podium at the Richmond Olympic Oval before the men s team pursuit took to the ice Still there was hope when Denny Morrison of Fort St John B C Lucas Makowsky of Regina and Mathieu Giroux of Montreal set an Olympic record as they knocked off favourites Italy in the quarter final and then again as they beat Norway in the semifinal In the final the trio broke out to a lead hitting speeds of nearly 60 km h during the eight lap race The Americans closed the gap as the race end neared and the crowd went berserk from 73 100ths to
