“Hey, how many people live in Canada? Yeah, it’s a tough question, the answer is 35 million. Now not too long ago George and I were singing in Canada. A beautiful country, our neighbors to the north, not too far from here. Canada’s a big country of 10 provinces and 3 territories and we were singing in the province of Saskatchewan. And while we were there we experienced a cultural moment with Lost and Found.
So we get to our hotel room, in Moose Jaw. And I mean it’s not like we were playing downtown Moose Jaw, we’re in one of the outlining areas, right? We’re not that big of a band.
Anyway, we get to our hotel room and we’re like BRRR! It’s freezing in here. Well of course it’s freezing; we looked at the thermostat and it says 17 degrees! So we set it on something reasonable, you know, like 65. And we went to the convention center and played our concert and when we went back to the hotel room we learned a little lesson about… celsius.
It was, a cultural moment with Lost and Found.”
