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! ”

Triumph bassist Mike Levine remembers getting the phone call. His band had just been inducted into Canada’s music hall of fame in April 2008, they were gearing up to play some summer dates when the call came through from their L.A agent that a promoter in Solvesborg, Sweden wanted them for his Sweden Rock Festival.

“Did we want to go…no,” muttered Levine. “But then we thought, it’s Sweden, what the heck, no one’s going to notice us out there. We couldn’t have been more wrong.”
