Despite several sabbaticals from the musical wars, Barney remains very much part of the fabric of Canadian music culture. He has so successfully transitioned from fronting a rock band to being a true Canadian troubadour in the tradition of Lightfoot, McLauchlan, and Cohen. I have loved his solo records, and they have frequently brought me to tears.
He is a very poignant songwriter. His voice has the ring of authenticity, and I am easily swept up in the narrative of his songs. Quite a man, quite an artist. To some extent, Barney acknowledges, he has had few anxieties about controlling his own life. Somehow, he just slipped into it, and it works. This life and career sometimes felt like a chaotic circus.
I feel like I am getting closer to that point of peace in my life. When it comes together. So, I dug a little deeper, and some new songs spilled out. A handful of those new ones inevitably bumped some of the songs I had already recorded. He genuinely cared about the plight of the people. The eccentricity and adventure of that spirit. Even with his professional career as a dentist, he would head up there because he loved the land. Again, songs go where they want to go and gradually it became more about a mutual friend we have, but with this subtext of the elder who we both so admired.
His stories about riding the rails and about World War II were riveting and entertaining. He was one of the most interesting, and most intelligent people I have ever met. He taught me many valuable things, and gave me my best friend, my wife Kath. He died with his boots on at the age of ninety-three. I wrote this song at our ranch shortly afterwards on a star-studded night.
The feel that the band laid down on this track gets me every time. I nstead, he lets listeners feel for themselves how these individuals grappled with and came to terms with their natural adversaries.
I could spend endless hours talking to them. When my future son-in-law was young, he bought this ranch from Albert in the Kootenays.
