"I'm just doing my Rock N Roll duty,
Creating a buzz buzz buzz,
Some say I'm in it for the money,
But I'm in it for the Love, Love, Love."
Canadian rock icon Kim Mitchell sings those lines on his personal mission statement, "Rock N Roll Duty" and he's still doing exactly that, energy and enthusiasm intact. For Mitchell, that's what it's all about, not the money, the fame or the trophy case.
Singer-songwriter Kim Mitchell is a true Canadian rock icon who has achieved gold and multiplatinum status over a long and storied career, starting early on as leader of the musically eclectic Max Webster, a band who in the late 70's defined alternative and independent long before the words became clichés. Post 'Max', Mitchell has sold over 1.5 million recordings and toured constantly over a lengthy solo career that remains creatively vibrant to this day. Along the way he won three Juno Awards for "Most Promising Male Vocalist of the Year", "Album of the Year" and "Male Vocalist of the Year". In the late 70's and through all of the 80's Kim toured the largest arenas in the country and today continues to perform at festivals, casinos and Performing Arts Theatres nationally. He is a gifted and peer-respected guitar player as well as an acclaimed songwriter, having penned and recorded classic hits like 'Go For Soda,' 'Rock N Roll Duty,' 'Patio Lanterns,' 'I am a Wild Party,' 'Easy To Tame' and 'All We Are,' to name just a few - all songs that have become part of the Canadian musical landscape. Add several new songs from his most recent solo recording Ain't Life Amazing (including the national rock radio hit of the title track), and audiences are thrilled to find that participating in a Kim Mitchell concert is like being at the live recording of a greatest hits box set which also often includes Max Webster gems like "Diamonds Diamonds", "Oh War", and "Battlescar", an anthem originally recorded with his friends Alex, Geddy and Neil of RUSH.
Six years ago, while maintaining a busy touring schedule, Mitchell was invited to join the on-air staff at the CORUS flagship station Q107 in Toronto, giving Kim his first ever day-job and one that he has excelled at. During his tenure as host of their afternoon drive show, he has maintained his position as one of the most popular DJs in the GTA making him one of the most listened to DJs in the country for the key demographic of men, 25-54.
Mitchell has the respect of peers, fans, and industry types alike. Just what does he consider his greatest achievement? "Shoot, that's easy," says Kim, "it's in the couple of hours the band is onstage, being able to take people to a special place through our performance and music. When that happens, I've accomplished what I set out to do." Legions of Canadian fans agree!
