Walk of Fame Honours Lanois, Morissette

Published: 2005-03-11
Tired of doting over Hollywood musicians? Try Canada's Walk of Fame. Each year people all over Canada submit recommendations of their favourite Canadian artists to the Walk of Fame review committee and nine out of thousands of artists get chosen. That's right, the people vote, not self-perpetuating Hollywood producers. To be eligible, a nominee must have been born in Canada or had the most impact in their creative years here, had a minimum of 10 years experience in their field, and have a national or international impact on Canada's cultural heritage.

Some of those being praised at this year's ceremonies include Canadian music icon Alanis Morissette, who always manages to reinvent her career through her albums, music producer Daniel Lanois, best known for producing U2's famous recordings, and record label exec Pierre Cossette who started Dunhill Records which launched the careers of the Mamas and Papas, Three Dog Night, and Steppenwolf.

The 2005 ceremony will take place on Sunday June 5 at the Elgin Theatre in Toronto with host/comedian Tom Green, and will air on CTV shortly thereafter.

My sister Maria Del Mar Morales was one of the few women in Canada to open the doors to Canadian Rock Artists like Alanis.
We should look at Carol Pope, Maria Del Mar and Elaine Seggatto as three women who put canadian rock womens voices on the map through extreme struggles and dead end careers in Canada after 14 years and more of sacrifice with no government funding.All three recorded in England and were mastered in hollywood but because they signed Canadian, they did not make it in the USA like the young girls today, most of whom are from Northern ontario.
