History

Halifax (by way of Ontario) teenager Goodwyn formed the band in 1969 with his two Henman cousins, David and Ritchie, and a third cousin Clench. The band was a Canadian hit and even had a successful single in the form of You Could Have Been A Lady. In 1978, and after signing with Capitol, the band broke internationally and the hard rockers' albums became commercially successful world-wide.

Even though the band had a major hit with Roller, Goodwyn put the band on ice in the mid-80's, did some solo work and lived in the Bahamas for some time. The band came back in 1992 and released an album. April Wine was one of the most successful and prolific of the Canadian hard rock bands alongside Rush, Triumph and Trooper. The band cancelled a Halifax show in early 2009 when singer Myles Goodwin was forced to enter the hospital after injuring his head in Montreal. Drummer Jerry Mercer who was ousted from the band in November of 2008 was left out of the band’s induction into Canadian Music Industry Hall Of Fame one year later.
