Triumph Drummer and Metalworks Founder Gil Moore joined Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and Councilor Doug Ford to help rock out on the first birthday of The City with Mayor Rob Ford , their weekly Newstalk 1010 Radio Show. The surprise visit from Gil launched a rock-talk and music industry discussion that showed the Mayor’s genuine passion for music.
Mayor Ford attended many of Triumph’s over-the-top shows at Maple Leaf Gardens and recounted the sound, lights, lasers and pyro extravaganza in vivid detail. They discussed Universal’s upcoming Triumph documentary directed by Don Allan; Metalworks’ expansion into education and live events; and recent Triumph projects at Metalworks Studios. In commemoration of the show’s anniversary and the Fords’ enthusiasm for Triumph, Gil was happy to present Mayor Ford with a Double Platinum Triumph Rock ‘n Roll Machine album plaque.
According to Gil, “Triumph fans are the best, and Mayor Ford and Councilor Ford are no exeptions. They are great supporters of the Toronto music cluster and their efforts supporting Music Canada’s initiatives highlight Toronto’s vibrant music industry; Rob is truly the Music Mayor! ”
