You’ve been hearing the voice of Dallas Green on FM96 for almost 15 years, singing in two very different bands. With Alexisonfire and his post-hardcore material, we moshed and danced at the Embassy time after time. By 2005, we heard a softer side of Dallas with City and Colour and a project he would leave Alexisonfire to focus on. With platinum albums from both bands, and City and Colour headlining Rock the Park this weekend, the spotlight’s on Dallas Green for this weekend’s Top 10. Here are some of the interviews you’ll hear clips from on air this weekend.

#3 City and Colour - Old Man
Dallas Green has spoken about his love for Neil Young that began at an early age; at 12 years old, he went to see his favourite band Pearl Jam performing with Soundgarden and Neil Young. He got to see Eddie Vedder play with his favourite artist (Neil Young) and found the whole night enlightening in how certain musicians can just inspire you on a different level. Yes, he loves Neil Young’s music too, but he really admires how Neil does what Neil wants to do, first. He was asked to play a cover in tribute to Neil at the Junos back in 2011 when he was awarded the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award.
