Paul Dean >
I first encountered Paul Dean in the summer of 1969 in Edmonton, at the Orange County Pop Festival.  We didn't meet on that occasion (I was just a member of the audience), but I remember being blown away by Paul and his band "Fox", which included Brian Newcombe on bass and Billy McBeth on drums. They were awesome.

In 1971 Paul joined "Scrubbaloe Caine", whose line-up included future Prism vocalist Henry Small.  In 1977 he joined "Streetheart", leaving the band in 1979 (along with drummer Matt Frenette) to form "Loverboy" with vocalist Mike Reno.

"Loverboy" recorded two songs co-Writers Bryan Adams and myself:  Jump and Dangerous

Paul and Bryan and I co-wrote "Win Some Lose Some" on Bryan's first album.
