The music world is mourning the loss of one of their own. Myles Goodwyn who rose to fame as the frontman of Canadian rock band, April Wine, has died this according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
While April Wine’s biggest success came in their native Canada during the early to mid-70s with Top 5 hits like, “You Could Have Been a Lady”, “Tonite is a Wonderful Time to Fall in Love” and “The Whole World’s Goin’ Crazy”, the band achieved moderate success in the states, too. “You Could Have Been a Lady”, “Roller” and “Just Between You and Me” each became Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hits. Their highest charting hit in the US was on the Rock Chart. “Enough Is Enough” cracked the Top 10, in 1982.
Goodwyn released solo works and wrote a book about his decorated career, as well.
Among the accolades, an induction into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame, East Coast Music Lifetime Achievement Award and the SOCAN National Achievement Award.
