This is the Helix line-up from around the year 2000. From 1996 until the band reformed in 2008 there were many different players in the band and I owe all of them a thanks for keeping the whole machine going. I remember seeing an old blues singer on TV and during the interview she commented, “There have been many people in my life. They came and they went but they all had a hand in my development”. I feel the same way about this period in the band’s history.
This picture was taken outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario at Kakabeka Falls around 2002 on the beginning of a western Canadian tour. From left to right:
