About Max Webster

Formed in 1973, Max Webster soon became one of the most original and popular rock bands in Canada. Their first three albums, Max Webster (1976), High Class in Borrowed Shoes (1977) and Mutiny Up My Sleeve (1978) achieved gold status in Canada.

Their platinum selling album A Million Vacations (1979) saw the first single “Let Go The Line” reach No. 41 on the Canadian charts and the follow up “A Million Vacations” hit No. 80 in Canada. The album’s third and final single “Paradise Skies” reached No. 21 in Canada and No. 43 on the UK Singles chart.

The band appeared on “Top of the Pops” in 1979 and headlined two New Year’s Eve shows at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens.

The band went on to be twice nominated for JUNO Awards for ‘Group of the Year’ in 1980 and 1981 respectively.
